Box Squat, SP 11-13-10

Shoulder Press - 127.5lb 5x5
Box Squat - 135x2, 175x2, 205x2, 230x2, 255x2, 275x2, 295x2, 315x2

Had more in me but stopped there since I'm new to box squats. That wide stance sure made me feel strong.

Haven't made the progress on back squats that I'd like to in the last few months, especially considering how much I've been squatting. I've wanted to give box squats a try and see how it goes. Used a 21" box which puts my hip above parallel a few inches. Going to do some more research but for now my plan is to lower box height by ~2" every 2-4 weeks and work my way down. Should be interesting to see what the results are on my high bar back squat. I'm thinking stronger low back, hips, glutes, and hammies will be nice.
