    BOX SQUAT - Added 40-50lbs to my Normal Squat in 2 weeks?!?!

    Anybody else experienced this?

    Was struggling with 315 for 1rep normal squat.

    Did solely Box Squats for 2 weeks ( 3x a week ) , not only did my Box Squat numbers fly up ridiculously fast, but my normal squat went up significantly higher (I'm talking 40+ pounds!)

    After doing some research, I found out Box Squats, because of the way you have to pull out the "hole" from a complete stop help your

    *GLUTE/HAMSTRING* activation.

    It is not necessarily even your muscle strength going up ( even though it does ), but more your Central Nervous System learning to utilize the muscles better [ Mind + Body correlation ] from this position.


    Please share some stories so I can see how others have benefited from this!! I am addicted to doing these now

    Read a little at the Westside Barbell website, and you will see some guys that benefited from it.
