View Full Version : I suck at box squatting

Ok so most of you know that my first post, I showed that my free squat totally sucked. Well for 4 months Ive been doing free squats to fix it, and at my last meet in march, I squatted 425 in single ply breifs/knee wraps. I did no box squatting.

Now I'm getting ready for football, and I want more hamstring/glute strength, so for the past 3 weeks Ive been box squatting, well my free squat raw is 405 in wraps, and today I tested a max box squat, and it was 315. I know my technique isnt the greatest for it, and I will post a vid next week.

Is this normal? I will have videos next week, I might deload since I was stupid and that friday after the meet i did a double off the box with the SS bar. BTW the box is at/little below parallel.

That big of a difference will diminish after you get better at box squatting.

It may be that your technique is off a bit which is causing the big difference. Post a video and it'll help a lot more.
