Box squats with a box that's right around parallel help with getting the right depth every time and sitting back and all that but partial squats off the pins (about 1/3 ROM) help with getting the body used to the heavier weights. Both train power out of a dead stop.
I haven't even done regular back squats in a while. I do these two and ATG front squats and that's all the squat training I do. I want to bring back squats back in and take out either box squats or partial squats.
What do you guys think?
Oh and another question. I was box squatting onto a box about a half inch above parallel. How should that compare to my PL squat? I want to know what weight range to shoot for when I try to max out next time.
