Box Squats Part 1 From Westside Barbell

Box squatting has been around since the days of the original Westside Barbell Club (Culver City, CA), when Pat Casey became the first man to squat 800 pounds. Since then, most world-record holders in the squat have trained by squatting on a box. Today, there are nine lifters who squat 1,200 pounds and at least seven are box squatters. I began box squatting in the late 1960s. In 1973, I squatted 630 pounds and deadlifted 670 at a body weight of 181 pounds. 27 years later, I squatted 920 pounds at the age of 52. Westside Barbell has 19 members who squat more than 1,000 pounds, and they all box squat. Every member of Westside Barbell does box squats year-round with free squats done only in competition.

BUYERS BEWARE!: Jason Manenkoff

From Elitefts: There has been a recent emergence of online powerlifting coaches, each of them making impressive claims and boasting of coaching abilities that would make Vince Lombardi Packers green with envy. Many of these “coaches” claim that, if you simply pay monthly via PayPal, then the constant hunt for the Holy Grail of training programs will be a thing of the past. After all, they’re ranked “numero uno” in the country (in their particular tri-state federation) and if you’re lucky, when they are not bouncing at a nightclub or doing repo work, they can help you reach a new level of strength prowess.
