Happy with purchaseI hesitated several months to get this due to the price. I know squats are extremely important. However due to prior bad form because I never bothered to learn proper technique, which would have been easy in hind-sight by watching some youtube videos before trying to barbell squat, I messed up my knees. My self-diagnosis is "quadriceps tendinopathy", because it hurt at the top of my knee during squats.
Well, I finally sprung for this squat box. Very pleased. The large base where you park your rear-end and its sturdiness (80 pounds), allows me the confidence to finally sit really back as I hinge my hips. I am tall, 6'3", with very long legs. By sitting back further than before, I don't have the knee pain anymore!!! That's the key to this squat box. It allows you to much more easily achieve proper form.
Your health is priceless. Anything that helps you achieve better fitness is worth the extra price.
