    You just started 5x5 a week ago. Just stick to it. You can start doing more advanced exercises and switching things up when progress slows.

    and you wonder why you were flamed to start a log....

    really, with the simple answers you get do you think these questions are worth asking?

    but no, if the 5x5 is an appropriate program for you then box squats are probably not appropriate for you.

    Stick with regular squats. Period.

    Making excuses to not do them will only hurt you down the road. The squat is your lord and master and should not be trifled with.

    Trifle reminds me of truffle.

    Carry on...

    And yes, stick to normal squats for now.

    This question is just as much about you as "Is it okay to yell in the gym?"

    Its just another silly question.

    No, squats are not replaceable by box squats. If they were don't you think you'd see a lot more people recommending box squats? Really, use some sense.

    Y'all seem pretty hateful toward box squats. Joe deFranco recommends them OVER back squats even in his WSSB program which is clearly a novice program. They help with form and take the stretch reflex out of the lift. They are even better for new lifters because of the first point.
