    Then it must be the powerlifters who've got it all ass-backwards again.

    The key quote in that article is:
    "Box squatting is the easiest way to learn to squat properly."

    You don't need to listen to old Louie Simmons, though, just google those same words and see what else turns up. Once again, this is an excellent tool for people new to squatting.

    Ummm arent box squats suppossed to be supplemental and not a rplacement? Thats what I get from reading about them. I realized I wasnt doing a box squat when my brother asked me if Im bending my back. He said if you bend your back its not a box squat. Your suppossed to go straight up and build power out of the hole. You have to use less weight and its like doing close grip bench as oppossed to regular bench.

    Your brother is wrong.

    Edit: I assume he means arching your back. Yes, you need to arch throughout box squats just as much as you do regular squats. And while box squats can indeed be a supplemental lift (I personally mess around with them every three or four weeks on average), they can also be performed as your regular lift (the Westside guys do these pretty much all year long).

    Jesus, man. I already called you a jerk. What do you want me to do? Come to your house, poke your mother in the eye and touch all the cutlery with warm, greasy hands? Would that make you happy, you sick son of a gun?

    There's a bit of controversy regarding box squats for non-powerlifter athletes. Some coaches think that the risks of the exercise outweigh the benefits. Try front squats -- its really, really hard to front squat badly. Or zercher/goblet squats.
