Project Jerk Box...

I've thought for a while now that my weightlifting progress has been at least somewhat hindered by not training jerks and other overhead work enough. The solution was building jerk blocks, but from everything I read they were expensive to build which is a problem with a limited budget. My primary sources of how to build them came from Catalyst Athletcis (, a guy at Auburn that built them (, California Strength (, and some pictures at USA Weightlifting ( I started pricing the materials needed for the project and the price tag of $300 claimed by Gregg Everett and Catalyst Athletcis seemed a little high compared to what i was coming up with. So my goal in all of this was to build quality jerk boxes that would hold up and last years but not cost a hefty $300. Then I figured if the price tag was holding me back from building them, then there were probably a lot of other people out there holding back as well. This blog was created to show that quality jerk boxes can be built for almost half the cost of what others have done it for.
