Here we go again with episode 3953 of defending the box squat. This topic has been covered so many other times by other coaches, mostly in the powerlifting community in an attempt to educate, however, This is going out to mostly high school coaches that bash the box squat without understanding the reasons behind it and how it benefits athletes by developing posterior chain power to help increase explosiveness, speed and athleticism. Admittedly this video is somewhat of a rant out of frustration after seeing how some coaches trained their teams and athletes by poor programming actually regressing progress and performance.
