MASTERING THE BOX SQUAT – WITH LOUIE SIMMONS

box-squat

“BOX SQUATTING IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE METHOD TO PRODUCE A FIRST-RATE SQUAT.” ACCORDING TO LOUIE SIMMONS AT WESTSIDE BARBELL, “THE SAFEST WAY TO SQUAT, BECAUSE YOU DON’T USE AS MUCH WEIGHT AS YOU WOULD WITH A REGULAR SQUAT.”

Obviously Louie is no joke when it comes to lifting; Training professional competing weight-lifters with one in particular Dave ‘Neutron’ Hoff lifting A total of 3005lbs / 1363kg

  • Squat 1210lbs / 548kg
  • Bench-press 975lbs / 442kg
  • Dead-lift 820lbs / 371kg

Doesn’t seem possible? WATCH THE VIDEO! I think it’s safe to say this dude Louie… He knows his stuff when it comes to strength!

So… I know exactly what most people are thinking, “she’s on steroids” Yes; She probably is. This is what she loves though and she had to nuts, no pun intended, the guts, to share it with you in aid of helping your training. She gets my respect for that! Also, because she has bigger quads than my body. That aside, the box squat is looking like an interesting addition to my training regime. What do you think about it?
