I want to get some blocks for O lifts. I'm not sure that's the exact term for it but they allow you to rest the bar above the ground, so you can pull from a higher level than the ground but don't have to pull from a hang.

Does anyone have a cheap source or a do-it-yourself plan for them?

Elliot,

There are some basic plans for the lifting blocks in the CF Sept Journal. Just below the article on do-it-yourself angled pylo-boxes

The ones we use are made from 2x4s that are layed over each other just like the ones in following picture of the Russian OTC I saw on Mikes Gym....

They are simple to make and very strong.
