I just use pads at my gym. they are rubber pads maybe 2 inches thick each, just pile them up until you ge tthe depth you want. I've see guys using the movable flat benches as well.

I have used the movable flat benches, and also the aerobic pilons.
Raid the aerobics room and get four or five of the platform pilons and stack them up. You can sit back on those and it works pretty well.

In my gym we just us plyo boxes, we have several heights of them, and there made of steel. I wouldnt go to elite fitness to much money, make your own of wood, look at the pictures of west side they us a wood box. Just make it strong because your body weight, bar weight, all on the box could be an accident wating to happen. What is the injury your recovering from??

Elite Fitness! Yeah, its a bit pricey, but the quality is inbelievable and everyone should try to support those who support lifting!

easier and cheaper!cut pieces of plywood to adjust height!
example would be make that standard box 12" hi
then get 1"playwood and cut it 5 or 6 times and you got a 16"box!

I tried them the first time Friday and the bench was wobbing and felt like it was going to collapse. Im not using that one anymore.
What else to you guys use?
I like the step-up idea..
also I might try this box we have at the gym,just a normal box..ill start out light.
any other idea's besides buying a box. I dont think i'll make one; although my brother builds stuff.
If you build it you make one side 13 one side 14 and one side 16 , or however many inches you want. Might have to end of getting it made.

well if your using a gym i wouldnt expect there be much options besides the benches or plyo-boxes if they have em. options are limited at gyms that dont cater to the harcore lifters who think outside the box
i've seen the elitefitness videos and all it seems they use sheets of 3/4 in plywood stacked up to the heigth they need.

I have built several sets for at work and the gym. I build them 29"X29", if your setting back like you should be a 16" box is not gonna cut it. Anyways I use 2x4 and 2x6's with 3/4" plywood on top. The rubber pads at the gym are handy for small adjustments in height or at work I just place a 10lb plate in each corner to get an extra inch of height.

Its almost like falling back right. letting your body almost fall backwards while controlling it.....
Jason Pegg describes it as just sitting down.
If a 26 in box is needed might have to get one made. I want the box squat the most effective way. whether its falling back and coming back up almost squeezing the hams and glutes..which i tried or just like a regular squat. so something tells me its whatever way you get best results. Falling back for me was harder because I never did it before. yes it was harder on 16 inches as well.

I box squat 315, plus my bodyweight (200), and it hasn't given me any reason for concern. I squat to the end of it, not in the middle (so its turned long ways towards me, not sideways).
the REAL answer to your question I do not know, only that it seems to work fine for me. Definitely a valid concern.

I am floating around a 600 box squat and EFS products are holding up just fine...
