Box Squat (On the Minute x 7 (On the 0:00))

Click here to see a video example of the box squat - The box squat is designed to utilize more glutes, hamstring, and back than the traditional back squats We'll break this movement down into 4 parts: Stance, Down, Sitting, and Up For the stance, we want to take a wider stance than usual to help pin point the posterior chain more On the way down, think about sitting back slowly so the shins are vertical instead of dropping straight down We want to briefly pause in a sitting position to take away the stretch reflex of the movement instead of just bouncing off the box The goal is to be explosive as possible on the way up to our standing position

For these box back squats, set the box just below parallel Start around 55% of your 1RM Back Squat and Build over the 7 rounds The focus here is on control and speed coming off the box over the weight used This is part 1 of a 2-part "running clock" piece The box squats will go from 0:00 - 7:00 You'll rest from 7:00 - 10:00 before beginning the clean complex, which lasts from 10:00 - 20:00
