I should explain further.

The doofus coach is me and about 5 weeks ago i tweaked my lower back doing pulls (I think).

Anyway i now find that full depth squatting and heavy pulls are hurting my lower back a bit. It is worst at the bottom of a full squatas my lower back just rounds a fraction and i think puts some tension on the ligaments around L4- L5

Front squats are fine (new PB FSQ last week), snatches are fine and clean and jerk isn't too bad but i'm being pretty cautious with the BSQ and clean pulls at the moment.

I'm wondering if i cut out the full depth squats for a while if i'll lose too much by doing box squats
