Can you make use of a slightly lower box so that when the box is removed you then hit parallel/just below parallel? It may help, it may not; but as others have pointed out, sometimes we have to go with what our bodies will permit and not with the ideal.

If lower boxes are a bad idea, feel free to correct this guys
