I was lightly resting on the box, pausing, and then pushing back up. I did some squats both ways and you can feel the difference huge in the hamstrings and the top of the quads compared to the free squat (terrible technique I'm sure) where I felt it a lot more in the bottom of the quads, knees, and calves.

My plan is right now to follow Rippetoe's beginner program TO A T and once I plateau to start doing other things like heavy/light days. Right now I'm more learning the lifts and teaching muscle memory as well as the mental side of being able to lift heavy weights instead of directly challenging my muscles to grow. Building the foundation so to speak.
