The only downside is that if there are multiple people there it can be easy to not see someone if they're lifting incorrectly due to other training going on or from the size of the box. I do back squat while there but since I've been "working out" about 6 months my trainer prefers to be nearby. When he started I'm assuming people were hurt by going too heavy and blowing their form so he is a little gunshy about it. I love my box, we only have front squats programmed into the strength portion. I hope that somewhat clarifies the situation. But don't worry I do back squat!
Your box allows front squats, cleans, jerks, and snatches but restricts back squats more than these lifts?

I would think back squats would come ahead of all of these in terms of simplicity and would be one of the most elementary lifts in terms of technique after a member has demonstrated appropriate form for an air squat.

You are correct, it is the simplest motion of all the lifts. We do plenty of air squats and other squat type exercises in our WODs, but (this is just my assumption) people are known to go heavy when they shouldn't and have hurt themselves. People can air squat perfectly all day, then throw 315 on a bar and watch the hideous-ness! Like I said, you can back squat if you want and he knows you won't be stupid, it's not programmed for the masses though when it comes to strength.

Re: 2013 Recap/2014 Goals

One last thing, we don't program snatches either. You have to prove you want to learn, then show good form and technique before you can go on your own. I've been there 6 months and I'm just starting to get on the PVC to learn the technique.

Re: 2013 Recap/2014 Goals

These are also taped to my garage door...

1. Minimum of three weightlifting meets. (1st scheduled for 1/26)
2. Grow to full size 94 kg (Currently ~88 kg)
3. 260 KG (115/145) Meet Total (Currently 99/129.5)
4. Stay healthy

Like some others I've made a move toward basically strictly weightlifting.

It's easier to 'cheat' a back squat compared to a front squat. If you try to 'good morning' a front squat out of the hole you lose the bar forward.

Re: 2013 Recap/2014 Goals

1) get to a point where I don't have to scale any WOD. This won't be too bad regarding weight for the most part, but movements - I've yet to do a muscle up (haven't tried), have a lot of trouble with HSPU and DU, and have never done a rope climb (haven't tried).

2) I'd really like to see a body weight snatch and C/J.

To recap '13, I think in 2.5 months I made some decent progress, going from doing lame workouts in my basement to CF 4-5 days/week.
