Introducing the New "Double-Wide" Toppers. All Blocks Have New and Improved Block Design.

The top-down method of teaching a weightlifter the snatch and the clean is the simplest and most effective coaching tool available. First learn the explosive 2nd pull from the power position, then the challenging transition from the low blocks, and finally master the 1st pull from the platform.

Minus blocks, pulling from the "hang" is possible, but this is challenging, especially for beginners in weightlifting. But using DC Blocks promotes complete recovery between reps, assures the weightlifter is in the correct position, and develops greater peak power.

Olympic Coach Harvey Newton confirms, "I always suggest using pulling blocks to teach basic weightlifting technique. Check Explosive Lifting for Sports and my e-book, The Power Clean: Developing Power for Sport. Blocks are the way to go!"

Adjustability, portability, and durability are three very important variables when looking for the right pulling blocks. Now, two-time (1984, 1988) USA Olympic Team weightlifter Derrick Crass has come to the rescue with his DC Blocks.

"The DC blocks are the finest pulling blocks I've used. The new, improved crenelated design is bomb-proof and makes for quick, safe adjustments from one height to another. They are convenient, durable, and very easily adjusted. This is a no-brainer, every gym needs at least one set of DC Blocks." -Harvey Newton
