So i tried DE box squats today, just want to make sure im doing them correctly. My max squat is 320, so i put 185 on the bar, and had the box setup slightly below parallel. I did 9 sets of 3 as fast as i could, even though they only felt really fast about 3/4 of the way up. I also had to slow myself down towards the lockout, which kinda hurt my groin. Any thoughts?

why 9 sets of 3? usually DE box squats are usually 8-12 sets of 2 reps. the sets vary with percentages with bands or chains.

if they didn't feel fast, you need to lighten the weight.
