Blobs and Block Weight Training are great for building hand strength.
Because you grip them with an open hand, they make your hands work harder than some other forms of training.
What’s even more awesome is having one in each hand!
Why have one hand just hanging out waiting for its chance to work, when you can have one Blob or Block Weight in each hand.
So, if you are looking for ways to bring up your hand strength, I definitely recommend Block Weight work, and the best resource available on it is Lift the Blob:

Related to Double Blob Training, on May 3rd, Juha Harju and I are going head-to-head on the Double Blob Hold for Time.
Here is some of the recent training I have done with Double Blob Holds:
Double Blob Hold for Time Training
That was cool and all, but I wanted to take it to the next level, so the next thing I did was loop a chain over top of the Blob. This made the Blobs heavier, the higher I pulled them, plus I couldn’t get the same bite on them with my hands, since the chain made my hand sit higher on them this way.
Double Blob Holds Plus Chains
The Blob Lift Plus Chains shows up at the 4-minute mark. The first portion of the video. I ask about whether people would be interested in challenges held here at the site.
My buddy Juha tried a similar challenge, adding chains to the Blobs, but he did it slightly differently, with magnets. I thought that was a great idea, so I gave it a try myself.
This was super challenging, and I loved it. That is what Training is all about: CHALLENGING YOURSELF!
Misses Are Just Warm-ups: Double Blob Lift Plus Chains
Never forget that Misses Are Just Warm-ups. Sometimes you don’t get a lift on the first try – you need to try it multiple times. Go for it brother.
BOOM! I love getting a PR or other hard lift completed and then grunting and growling. I love the Intensity and feeling like an all-out Animal or Machine.
I have been doing other training with Double Blobs lately. I will post it up soon.
All the best in your training.
