- Excellent squat box
Note: I use it for box squatting.
I was in the market for a squat box, something made of metal and not some weak apparatus available that falls over when you look at it, also it had to be adjustable to save space.
Normally I would look to companies like Rogue and Elitefts but the shipping costs would raise the price through the roof.
I found my match in this product. It's sturdy as hell; I was genuinely impressed by the quality of it.
Included in the package are:
The top part consisting of a metal plate and two box profiles attached to it.
The lower part consists of two legs that slide over the box profiles.
Two metal "pins", it has an U shape.
The package felt heavy; most of the time that is a good sign.
The height is adjustable by putting the supplied metal pin into a hole of a leg that matches a hole in the box profile.
There are 5 holes in the box profile; the center of these are around 2,5cm apart. At it highest the box measures around 40cm.
For me that's a bit below parallel, perfect. You can easily raise the height by adding a rubber mat (the kind you put under a washing machine) or putting plates on top of it. Or you can squat lower.
When adjusting the height I recommend putting it on its side and move the legs separately.
The top is made of checker plate, measuring 45cmx45cm; it is supported by a frame surrounding the edge and two beams in the middle (the place where the box profiles meet). I don't see this bending or breaking; ever.
When sitting down it feels pretty comfortable, I was expecting something else with checker plate.
For squatting I simply turn the box a bit so I can sit down on it without my calves hitting the plate.
The "feet" where the box rest on (two on each leg) has a rubberish casting, preventing slipping.
Time will tell if these last, but I suspect they will come off after a year or 2 of usage. For now they make the box stick to my shuttering plywood like magnets.
As said before I'm very pleased by this product and if you are in need of a squat box in Europe if would recommend this on.
The only way to make it better is to attach little wheels to it so it's more easy to move around.
