BOX SQUAT, The Football Body Workout For men
SETS: AT LEAST 5 REPS: WORK UP TO A 3RM REST: AS MUCH AS NEEDED
Set up a barbell on the supports of a squat rack and place a box a few feet behind you. The box should be low enough that your thighs are parallel to the fl oor when you sit on it. Step underneath the bar and grab it with your hands about 8 to 12 inches wider than shoulder width. Nudge the bar off the rack and stand with your feet wider than shoulder width . Bend your hips and knees, lowering your body onto the box . Pause for a moment and then explosively stand back up. That’s one rep.
