Shaf, what are your thoughts on Poliquin's stance on box squats for athletes?

I think Poliquin is missing the point. As Steve said it's more of a posterior chain movement and thus Poliquins statement about a lack of functionality due to shin position is pretty irrelevant.

It's like saying that bench press is bad because it doesn't work the calves.

Also I don;t know if he's smoking crack but he must be mainlining fish oil!! 300-400g a week sounds like a lot to me. I have trouble choking down 5g a night!

I can put 10g back with little or no trouble but thats me...

I think he's on crack as well!

He has a thing for throwing babies out with the bathwater. As soon as he can't figure out why he can't get something to work properly he tosses it. Basically he's too arrogant to realize he doesn't know everything and might need to be taught how to do certain things. I would wager he is an academic learner only not an experiential one! If it doesn't make sense to him on paper it doesn't make sense at all...

But box squats are cool! Steve will look into them some more but frankly I think the application is limited in my environment. I have to look into their application some more before I make a judgement. I'm just not sure where I would fit them in...
