Yet another reason to add the Box Squat to your routine. It's safe, highly effective, easy to learn and overload.
Here's an outstanding flow chart from my fellow queens native jasonlpak achievefitnessboston

What’s up Achievers?! jasonlpak here and today we’re going over the exact squat progressions we use with our members at Achieve!
1️⃣Squat to a box with a reach
2️⃣Goblet squat (kettlebell or dumbbell)
3️⃣Offset kettlebell squat
4️⃣Double kettlebell front squat
5️⃣Barbell zercher squat
6️⃣Barbell front squat
7️⃣Barbell back squat
8️⃣Barbell overhead squat
We think it’s really important to follow this order and not skip right to some of the later variations without spending significant time in the earlier stages! While there may be some folks who can skip around a bit, we have really found that this order is great for beginners who need to learn the proper patterning first, and progress to more challenging variations over time.
It’s also important to note that not everyone will go through this full list! Plenty of folks will stay on the top line forever and that’s totally fine! Whether it’s due to previous injury, mobility restrictions, or simply not having interest in working with a barbell, it’s not uncommon to stick with variations early on this spectrum! As long as you continue to progressively overload (add weight over time) you will still see great results and progress!
We hope this helps you out! Share with a friend who would enjoy it! And until next time, peace, love, and muscles! ✌️💙💪
