NO! Not in that way you friggin pervs :bash: :bash:

I've *never* box squatted before, never really had a good opportunity. Now that I've got my new setup, I realized I can use igloo coolers (of which I have 3 of varying heights, so that's pretty cool) to do box squats.




So, I'm starting them up, doing bar only for warmups/form, start adding some pounds, and as soon as I got to something that was quasi-heavy, and couldn't gingerly seat myself on that box, I started sitting on one of my, ahem, you know. I was able to shift the weight w/o hurting my back and w/o crushing the lil guy, but am I missing something here? I mean, should I be wearing tighty whiteys or somethign? Just the motion of moving back into it was kind of making me 'swing', so to speak, into a position where I almost crushed one. And that would've sucked more than anything in my life :whazzup:

Does this sound like I'm leaning into the box wrong, or that I just need to wear tight boxers or briefs if box squatting?


<<<BTW I LOVE box squatting, wish I'd come up with a practical way of doing this before!!>>

Hahahah, I read the title wrong. I was like WTF?! Haha, guess I'm a perv.

That's never happened to me, I wear boxer briefs though.

bako - I just looked at your journal, your PR's on squat/dead/bench are almost IDENTICAL to mine when I weighed ~165. I'm mid 40's now and building back up, can't wait to start nailing those again!!

I think you answered your own question. wear some tighter boxers or compression shorts.

coolness, will do.

I **** you not - half an inch further and I'd be out of this game for so long it wouldn't even be funny (who am I kidding, it'd be funny as hell to everyone, just not me lol!).

Probably because you tried to land on the box.
