Tip of the Day
Box squatting is a very effective strength training tool. It helps build the posterior chain and puts less pressure on the knees.  On your dynamic effort days (speed days), try to sit to a box or bench that is an inch lower than what you would do on your heavy day.  This adds variance to your training.
