Im seeing Box Front Squats everywhere at the minute it seems,

How are these more beneficial than normal fronties?

Ive been doing pause front squats, with a low box just for depth indication. ill go down and touch the box, without completely sitting, keeping the tension on the legs mostly. after a long second, explode up. moderate reps, from 5-10. by holding the bottom position, it improved my core strength to hold that upright posture. Ive had much better gains this way than just doing a touch and go front squat.

I asked the question on explosiveness for overhead. RIP MJ
