    Good job on the 405lbs man. Don't get too comfy on that high box though, it will make it that much harder to use a low box later on once you get stronger.

    Good work in here man. I like your idea of alternating box hights for the squat too. I always try to vary it as much as possible so I can eliminate any weakness there.
    36 yr old novice PL

    Best lifts (non competition):
    Squat - 305
    Bench - 300
    Deathlift - 405
