    Just another update: box squatting exclusively for 9 months now. Hit 410x6 yesterday at a BW of 187 lbs. Ran a 13:07 2-mile last week during the APFT. I don't think I'll go back to regular squats.

    Being strong does not mean they are doing something "right" or "optimal". There are a ton of very strong idiots who are strong despite their training, not because it.

    Honest question: how do box squats not negatively impact rucking/running while regular squats do?

    For me they are easier to recover from than regular squats. Which probably has to do with using less weight than a regular squat. However, it seems to be working for me. I don't ever plan on competing in any strength sport and I can honestly say that my knees, hips, and back feel much better now than they did when I wasn't using the box. I DEFINITELY feel fresher for runs/rucks/range ops/field exercises than when I was squatting without a box.

    I found some things Andy wrote about box squats; maybe he'll chime in.
