Ballistic Blocks

Any one use these and what are your thoughts.

Advantage I see is a space saver over a tire and multi purpose i.e. Sledge Hammer, Plyo jumps, functional lifting and shooting bullets into it .

Looking for your feedback before I shell out the dollars to get one.

We have one that gets significant use for sledges as its usually raining here and we can't fit a tire in the garage. My wife also prefers to stand on the block instead of a box the get to a pull up bar. Overall we're happy with ours.

Re: Ballistic Blocks

Would this be forgiving enough for sledges? Seems would be tougher on the elbows than would a tire?

We haven't encountered any joint problems with using the blocks for sledges.
