Blocks are a great tool to help an athlete develop strength, speed, and an awareness during different points of the pull. An athlete who is tentative about pulling under the bar would benefit largely as well due to the more “reactionary” nature of the lift.
Set the blocks low to strengthen the position at/around the knees and higher to limit the time and distance to develop second pull power.
