Newton Sports Offers DC Blocks at a Discount
DC Blocks, a revolutionary new way to address learning and training the lifts from adjustable blocks, are now available through Newton Sports. Two-time USA Olympian Derrick Crass (1984, 1988) invented these blocks, which are made from recycled plastic.
Coach Harvey Newton recalled, “I had the pleasure of coaching Derrick at the Olympic Training Center in the 1980s. We used either small wooden blocks that did not survive an Olympiad (4 year training cycle) or huge, wooden pulling blocks that worked well, but could not be easily moved or adjusted to the correct height for different lifters. DC Blocks is an amazing solution to both of these problems.”
USA-made DC Blocks are available in various configurations. The blocks have dozens of practical applications for coaches wanting to teach Olympic-style lifts, along with the added utilitarian purpose as jumping boxes. “I’ve been using DC Blocks for several years, with both novice and experienced lifters. DC Blocks are absolutely the finest and most convenient means of teaching snatch and cleans,” says Coach Newton.
