    Basically you put a box under you while you sqat and touch your azz on it each time you go down. makes it a 90 degree squat each time you go down.

    When you sit back on the box you want to release your hips... don't just touch and go. If you are really interested in lseeing what a box squat looks like and how its done correctly, then buy Louies videos. Good visuals and instruction.

    As Dr. Shed said, check out some articles from Westside Barbell Club. Choose a box that allows you to go slightly below parallel. Take a wide stance and keep your torso as upright as you can. Concentrate on sitting back onto the box. Come to complete stop and reverse the movement. For a better description check out Louie Simmons or Dave Tate's recommendations.

    when box squatting. You squat down to a box, keep the core tight all the time. Roll back slightly as you touch the bench the forward and drive up. chest out and get the hips under your chest and use your glutes.

    I love them personally, I do them once a month and usually go another 10-15 degrees beyond the 90 degree mark...oh what a feeling.

    Box squats are great. They develop great starting strength/power out of the hole of yr squat. If you plan on competing use a box that puts u where your competition depth will be.
    Low Low boxsquats help alot with deadlift starting strength/power as well.
