    I usually just go until my hips crease is just below my knees, which is more or less my hamstrings stacked on my calves anyway.

    I'm a lifter so box depth suits me just fine.

    I usually go halfway. I don't see the need to go deeper than that.

    Honestly, coming out of the hole when you are deeper works up into your hips more. Also, I'm more a powerlifter than at all a body builder, so I don't want to practice reps that would get me a red light.

    If your mobility and body mechanics just allows it I always recommend using full range of motion any given every exercise.

    Re: Deep squats vs box squats

    It just depends. ATG squats are great but they do put a lot of added stress on your knees and lower back, especially if you go heavy. Higher rep ranges are fine at full ROM. But honestly everybody just has different things that work for them over others. Mobility is a big part of it. Do what feels comfortable and allows you to maximize the set. You have to find your balance
