Re: Jerk Block Building Tutorial

I can only imagine how long it took you to build those. I'm glad Monique isn't asking me for a set.

Re: Jerk Block Building Tutorial

Thanks for sharing Greg, those look great.

BTW:
Can you box jump on those? May be a way to justify the space they will take up in my garage ;-)

These also make great squat stands, plyo boxes, etc. Nice work!

Yes. They actually make better box jumps than a lot of boxes out there - better height adjustment, and the tabs inside keep them from sliding off each other. Plus they outweigh most male adults.

Nice, Greg. Very nice. I'm just going to drop my jerks and have Eva Claire pick them up for now...

Best,

Jon
