The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Where to get a box?

    Where could I buy a box for a fairly cheap price, or what could I make one out of for box squats?

    You could make one easy out of 2x4s and some flat pieces of wood. It is pretty simple...

    Lol that's a good idea, I never think of the simple things, i'm gonna look it up myself but do you know about how much that would cost? Not sure how high I want the box yet but probably a couple inches below parallel and i'm 5'6".

    Just go to Home Depot and get some plywood and 2x4's, you'll probably spend less than $20.

    I would reccomend building a series of smaller ones, like a couple 6 inch boxes, then some 2 inch ones and maybe have a couple pieces of plywood left over for 1 pieces. gives you some versatility.

    Or just a big one and several pieces of plywood for adjustments. By big I mean like 12 inches or so then ply wood up to whatever.

    Don't make the box a perfect cube. Make the sides differnt lengths, that way you can get 3 different heights from one box.. just depending on which side you turn it.

    Definitely dont need to build it the way I did, but this might give you an idea. Mine is really sturdy and will last a long time.
