Unioners, sing with me the classic box squat song!
Box Squats are rad, box squats are fun, remember that time you squatted a ton! All you do is find a box, bench, or a couple mats, then go ahead and slowly sit your buttocks back. You can use your bodyweight, kettlebells and even a barbell would be great. Go ahead and ask your friend to a box squat date. Box squatting with a friend is always so nice, with them at your back, go ahead and hit that weight twice. Beware the dreaded box squat plop, if you do this too long, you will feel like slop. Box Squats teach you to keep your position big and proud, so when you gently sit on that box, you’re floating on clouds. With the box beneath you you’ll always hit the depth mark. Keep on box squatting and you’ll have bigger glutes and hams than a shark. Set the box higher if you can’t go too low, then overtime your technique will grow. For all my Bill Nye science folks the box squat breaks the eccentric concentric chain which helps us have a giant jolt from the stop to start position. From beginner to professional everyone should try the box squat. So now come on over to Union and let’s rock. Remember, I love the box squat and so should you, but please make sure you tie your shoe.
