What do you use for a box?
I love regular high bar Olympic squats but I'm into performance pretty big too and I have definitely chosen to do box squats. The problem is the guys house I lift at is hardwood floor so there's no possibility of using anything with wheels like an old flat computer chair. What do you use personally? Maybe some of you guys are pretty idealistic.

You won't want to use anything that could move... like a chair w/wheels. A flat bench can work. I built a box out of 2x4's a while back. Just stack 'em, criss-cross, nail or screw it down to a minimum height. Build another short box or two so that you can have a few heights... or just throw plates or mats on top of the base for the same effect. Design can vary but kept it stupid-simple... a box and a sturdy one at that.

I made a box with 2x4's. Took a couple hours to build, but fairly straightforward.
