Re: Best Posterior Chain Exercises


We don’t just use box squats, as I’m more a fan of Olympic style squats to be honest. We still use them though just not as much. With regards to your question Dave Tate ( advocates saying ‘1000’ whilst sitting on the box then driving up. obvioulsy then main advantage of box squatting is the way it targets the posterior chain as supposed to a regular squat.

The time spent on the box is reflective of a standard box squat, anything shorter than that and you are just using the box as a depth marker. However, you must have any athlete stay ‘tight’ during the box squat, as i have seen people in commercial gyms and other organizations just drop without control onto a box-this is a recipe for disaster.

Hope this helps.
