CrossFit Silos – CrossFit
Box Squats (5×5)
backsquat to parallel or below to bench or box
5 sets of 5 starting at 50% of your BS 1RM. Increase load by 5-10% each set. Go at your own pace and record your heaviest set of 5. Points of focus: neutral spine, heels down, knees out and make sure to KEEP YOUR SHINS VERTICAL! The reason for this movement is to get you to load the glutes and hamstrings when you initiate a backsquat.
Stance will be a little bit wider than the normal squat and the toes are slightly more flared out. Hips go back FIRST, reaching back with the weight on your heels. Stay tight at the bottom. Rest for about a second and then explode up as fast as you can, driving from the heels and pushing your knees out. Keep your belly squeezed tight and your lumbar arch intact. Avoid relaxing at the bottom or “plopping” onto the box or bench. Skip to 4:30 for video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9UHe98-iWw
