Benefits of a box squat

The box back squat offers several benefits:

  1. Improved Technique: Using a box helps ensure you reach the correct depth in the squat, promoting better technique and form.
  2. Lower Body Strength: It targets the muscles of the lower body, particularly the quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes, enhancing overall leg strength.
  3. Increased Power: By pausing on the box, you reduce momentum and increase the need for explosive power to stand back up, which can improve athletic performance.
  4. Safety: The box provides a consistent stopping point, reducing the risk of going too low and injuring your knees or lower back.
  5. Focus on Specific Weak Points: It allows you to work on particular segments of the squat movement, especially the bottom position, which can help overcome sticking points in your lift.
