DC Blocks Double Wide
For athletes looking for a larger pulling surface, DC Blocks are also available in these “Double-Wide” pairs (23 LB each). The blocks are the same length (19”) and height (2”) as the originals, but a full 31” across—meaning they fit on top of two original, crenellated DC Blocks placed side-by-side. The result is a wide pulling platform that doubles as portable jerk blocks.
DC Blocks® were developed by two-time Olympic weightlifter Derrick Crass (Team USA, 1984 & 1988), and are made in America from a virtually indestructible blend of recycled plastics. Their portability, stackability, and sizing makes them ideally suited for quick, incremental height adjustments as different athletes get their reps.
Rogue currently offers the Double-Wide DC Blocks in sets of 2, 4, 6, or 12.
Benefits of Lifting Blocks
Some athletes use blocks to help them improve the mechanics of their snatch-and-clean technique or to develop greater explosiveness. Others turn to the blocks when nagging injuries (often the lower back or knees) make it more difficult to start from the hang position. No matter how you use them, DC Blocks are a wise investment—offering the functionality of traditional blocks in a light, portable, and affordable format.
Please Note: Less experienced lifters should be cautious when using blocks, as missed drops can result in the bar deflecting or rebounding into harm’s way. It is recommended to start with less weight than what you’re accustomed to with lifts from the floor. Rogue also suggests trying different stack heights to determine which starting position works best for you.
