5/3/1 and Box Squats
I recommend to someone that it would be ok to swap box squats for squats if they wanted while running Wendler's, and some random troll jumped on me all but saying I was going to hell.

Is Wendler that anti-box squat?

I know he doesn't specifically list box squats as an option in he program, but the testimonies list quite a few box squat success stories.

I did not think that wendler was anti-box squat. I have a seen a ton of guys do 5-3-1 with box squats, why not???

Seems to work for a lot of people, stupid troll

Thanks Jeremy. The troll positioned himself like an expert so I thought there was something I had missed. In the end I deleted his comment after I found the success stories referencing box squats.
