Does anyone have tips on how to DE Squat without a box? That's all I ever used and my new commecial ****ty gym does not have boxes to squat on. It just seems like you can work more on explosive power/speed when you can explode off of a box.

Build your own box.

That's an idea, but since I am DE squatting tonight (or I am supposed to) I was looking for an alternative.

If you wanna go ghetto you could always just stack 100 lb plates or even 45's. Just be caurefull not to knock em over.

Dude, there are bright red plyo boxes up front next to the trainers' desk. Grab one of those that are about the right height and squat away.

Plyo boxes, aerobic steps, weight plates in a pinch. Basically what everyone else said.

I used a stepper with a 45 under each side, that put me about 2" below.

just use a pause at the bottom but yes, build a box pronto... Of course, based on your numbers you ddin't need anybody to tell you that.
