catalyst athlete's opinion
 
Greg, would you or anybody from your gym comment on these pulling blocks?

I have a company that I could get a pair of these from for ~125$. I already have a set of jerk boxes but have been debating on building a set of pulling blocks as well. Do your athletes have a preference? Any issues with the metal blocks?

We don't have those anymore at the gym. Those blocks have a really small surface area and the base isn't very stable so if you're only going to be doing snatch/clean PULLS with them and not dropping weight on them from overhead then they should be fine but they're not for doing the full lifts.

Greg wrote a blog on how you can build some that we use here at the gym... http://www.catalystathletics.com/blo...hp?blogID=1650
