    Default Louie Simmons - Westside Barbell vids on Youtube

    I recently noticed there have been a number of Louie's lectures uploaded to YouTube lately. Check 'em out:

    Do box squat's. When I was training that is the only type of squatting I did, to varying heights of boxes. It helped develop better technique, and more explosive power out of the hole. Also If I wanted to do Dynamic effort work later in the week I had the power and energy to do so because you take less of a beating when squatting to a box.

    One good thing about being a powerlifter, was that I got to talk to Louie many many times, exchanging idea's and what not, and he is a guy that truly knows his shit in and out one of the best minds in S and C to every exist. And he doesnt even have a college degree, aint that something.

    are basicly just copying louies ideas...

    I was rather surprised when Louie said they don't do any regular squats, except at the meets, and that most of what they do is box squats. I'm thinking to boost my deadlifts of doing a 3 month program of box squats, and good mornings, just to see what the effect is. I'll probably still be doing swings and dimels during this time as well.

    Considering the relatively light loads of the double kettlebell front squat as compared to a barbell; would one reap some of the benefits of barbell box squats by incorporating kettlebells front squats with a box? Just something to think about. Does anyone have an opinion or experience with this?

    My trainer had me do box squats for about a 3 month period before going back to regular squats, and both my lifts went up substantially. If nothing else, it was nice to switch it up a bit.

    I was thinking double 70's and up. I suppose it's all relative to each persons level of strength though.
