The box squat is all about how you use the box. If you use it to get a bounce, it's counterproductive for its purposes. If you use it to gauge depth and power out of the hole, it's a great help. Most people can't control the descent of the lift well enough to be able to squat free, bottom out, pause, and come back up. With that, the box becomes very handy but to that end you still have many who use it as a safety net to catch themselves and they use it as a way to get some bounce on the way back up. A pause at the bottom is ideal.

Age doesn't have much to do with how many this or that days you do in the gym. Look at old powerlifters like Louie Simmons. Not every session requires you kill yourself.
