I discovered tonight another factor affecting my box squat besides hip flexibility. Even though my hip flexibility has improved, I still had a problem sitting on the box with the bar on my back. I was able to sit on the box without a bar on my back. I experimented with a wider grip on the bar and it helped. My box height goal wasn’t reached tonight, but I had a considerable break through with the grip adjustment. Sean was in town to train with us tonight and with his coaching, I was able to have the best DE squat session that I have had in months. The weights that I used tonight in prior months felt too heavy. Next week I need to get back on plan with the box height regression.
