I was reading that interview with Dave Tate about hypertrophy and was quite interested when he started talking about the tall lifter who couldn’t increase his squat.
I’m 6’4 and my squat numbers are pathetic at best. I usually keep a bit wider than shoulder width stance, I usually go parallel or deep. I’ve read though that deep squatting may not be the best for someone my height, especially considering my loooong legs.
So anyway, in his interview, he set the guy up with a much wider stance and had him start lifting onto a high box. I want to try this to see if it helps my squat numbers. Thing is I don’t lift at a gym and I haven’t been able to find info on how tall a high box is exactly?
Any suggestions or information is much appreciated. I’m sure it’s been asked numerous times before so I apologize for that.
