In this equipment feature, elitefts Equipment Sales Director Matt Goodwin appears to have some trouble lifting and moving a traditional box squat box.

Instead of continuing to carry the stand and potentially pulling a muscle, Matt signals for a lighter, more versatile option: the elitefts Squat Box.

Where the traditional box squat box is usually made from steel, and requires a bit of effort to adjust its height, the elitefts Squat Box is lightweight, made out of cell foam and covered in vinyl nautahyde, and can adjust heights at the flip of a wrist! Or in this case, a literal flip of the Squat Box itself. It’s 14” x 16” x 18”, meaning you have three different heights all in one item.

And yes, even though it’s made from foam, that doesn’t mean it’s soft. It’s softer than your traditional box squat box, but it doesn’t squish or compress under weight. It’s been tested with a 325-pound lifter with 750 pounds on his back with no compression. Zilch. Nada. Zero.

For your convenience, the Squat Box also has a handle, which makes it easy to travel with. You could carry it around all day for an extra place to sit... or better yet, take it with you to the gym.

And actually, you really shouldn’t just sit on it because it’s made for box squatting. It’s not for step-ups or jumps. It’s not stable enough for that. But if you like the idea of something similar that is for step-ups or jumps, check out the elitefts Plyoboxes. Not only is the Squat Box less stable, but it’s also shorter. If you miss that jump, you’re going to end up with your back on the floor.

Overall, the elitefts Squat Box is super convenient for people who are on-the-go 24/7. Just stick it in your car so it’s ready to go with you whenever you’re ready to drop a box squat.
