Rogue Box Squat Box


Mark Bell on the box squat

The Rogue Box Squat Box has an oversized 24" x 24" heavy duty rubber top, extra large base for stablity and is adjustable from 12" - 18". Use this box for box squats, step ups, Bulgarian squats, box jumps and more.

What's the difference in quad (thigh) muscle activation between a wide stance squat and a close stance squat?

The answer to this question is after you read why you need a box or a few boxes in your box. In the mean time I got another question for those Oly lifters and CrossFitters out there, where do your feet end up when you are doing snatches and cleans and you are fatigued or even worse the weight is too heavy to keep proper form? They end up wide... Wider than shoulder width correct? I'm a CrossFit® Powerlifting coach and I see this all the time, so don't try to lie about it. Because you end up wide let's train through that position and build up some super strong squat and pulling muscles.

The Box Squat allows you to sit back further getting deep into the hams and glutes. It develops the proper squatting muscles while reinforcing correct technique. The wider stance and straighter foot position used for the box squat activates the hips and helps eliminate the excessive (bounce) stretch reflex that many close stance Olympic style lifters get. This makes the box squat more challenging but will also make your regular squat stronger and more efficient.

To get full hip activation you need to push out on the sides of your feet and externally rotate. A great example of this torque and force production can be seen by top level sprinters in the beginning of the race.

This 24" x 24" box is for the widest of as**s so anyone from a Crossfittian to a Sumo wrestler can use this box. On top of that it can handle the strength exhibited by the strongest powerlifters in the world. This box is battle tested and it has stood up to many of my squat workouts at Super Training. Keep in mind my best squat is 1080 so this box can handle a crap load of pressure and I haven't seen any signs of wear and tear.

What you will get and what I'm seeing from athletes all over the world is this: with stronger hips, hams and glutes you will notice a big bump in your cleans, snatches and deadlifts with out training them as often.

The answer to the question "What's the difference in quad (thigh) muscle activation between a wide stance squat and a close stance squat?" – There is none, as proven by recent university studies! So squat wide, off of a Rogue Box Squat Box and reap the benefits of PRs, stronger hips, low back, hams, and glutes!

Rogue Box Squat Box is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate box squat box As others have stated, this box is a TANK! It is extremely secure and stable to squat off of. Mine arrived with some damage, but Rogue went above and beyond in taking care of it. Also, as other's have stated, you can use this for more than box squats. Hip thrusts, step-ups, split squats, etc. It's very versatile. My solution for the adjustability being a PITA, is that I keep the box set on a lower setting, so that it's closer to ground and when I want to change the height, I add/remove Rogue ballistic tiles to the top of the box. Want to raise the height 3 inches? I add two ballistic tiles. I already had a stack of ballistic tiles sitting around, so I realize this may not be feasible for everyone. But it works amazing if you can swing it and makes changing the overall height fast and easy,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best "Squat Box". Despite owning many Rogue products I honestly had my doubts about this thing being as sturdy as others reviewers had mentioned. Well I'm here to say this thing is ROCK SOLID. Especially side to side, front to back at the highest height theres maybe a touch of wiggle. It's an awesome "Squat Box" but I feel that you can do so much more with it, step-ups, jumps, and the adjustability is much nicer for uni-lateral work; Bulgarian split squats and Poliquin Step-eps. We've even found success using this box for Glute Hip Thrusts - a lot sturdier than a bench and just putting a yoga mat over the side is enough padding! If anything it's most difficult to move, this thing is honestly HUGE and a tough carry my preferred method is dragging it around the gym using the legs like skis. As for changing the heights its not that bad... flip it over quick unscrew pull out the pins and set new height then flip back up. Not something you'd want to do several times a workout but changing it for the training session is easy enough!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sturdy but extremely difficult to adjust For heavy clients and jumping on it's great but when needing to adjust I HATE this thing. It takes me almost 10 minutes just to raise or lower. I tried seeing if I could exchange it after having it for about a week but was told I couldn't because it had already been used

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Squat Box The Rogue Squat Box is a very versatile piece of equipment. Besides using it for squatting, it can be used for box jumps, step ups, dips, and incline push ups, just to name a few. Very sturdy piece of equipment also.
