The widened stance and dead stop that a box squat provides is perfect for developing the glutes. The truth is, deep squats can often serve to load the quadriceps to a greater degree than the glutes. Cutting your range of motion slightly and coming to a full stop optimizes the glutes’ activity. Remember not to put all of your weight on the box, or allow your spine to round. Simply put, don’t “relax” when you sit down! Reach back for the centre of the box, and stay tight.
