Never been a fan of the box squat. Good way to compress your spine.

If your program works for you then keep at it. I personally have issues with it. Twice a week(overtrained especially if you are skating/playing), adding 15 lbs. a week(too much), going below parallel(the stress over the patella past 90 degrees of flexion can lead to all kinds of issues)

All no no's and I know a little, but not trying to start a weight lifting debate. If it works for you then more power to ya. Just pay attention to results, pain, and injuries.

Not the greatest for explosive power, but 185lbs for sets of 15 to just above parallel will be your friend when your old Injury/pain free and you'll reap the benefit all through those 60 sec. shifts.
