We propose to consider lattice monopoles in gluodynamics as continuum monopoles blocked to the lattice. In this approach the lattice is associated with a measuring device consisting of finite-sized detectors of monopoles (lattice cells). Thus a continuum monopole theory defines the dynamics of the lattice monopoles. We apply this idea to the static monopoles in high temperature gluodynamics. We show that our suggestion allows to describe the numerical data both for the density of the lattice monopoles and for the lattice monopole action in terms of a continuum Coulomb gas model.
