Clubbells and Indian clubs are ancient training tools that have gained great popularity in recent years, for example with cross training and x-fit. That way, one can say that it is a proven training concept that will not go out of fashion right away. The same is true with the macebell hammer, which has come more as an old weapon that was at the same time effective to train with.
A macebell is a heavy steel ball that is welded to the end of a steel bar. It can be lifted up and swung around - it is effective training without shock from blows.
Now macebell hammers are becoming increasingly popular in all forms of training such as cross-training and other strength training. With a macebell hammer, you can train grip strength, strengthen your shoulders and neck as well as core muscles / core - especially in the upper body - and improve both balance and coordination. Macebells can, for example, be incorporated into exercises for the legs - eg squats - and contribute to a full body workout.
It is important to find the right weight for the desired training method. As always, it is most important to have control of technique typically at low load and slow execution before increasing the load in particular. For mace bell hammers, the lever principle applies as the weight is very further placed. What sounds like a small load can very well be difficult to master with proper technique. Therefore, choose a lower weight rather than compromising on the technique. There is ample opportunity to get inspiration for training by searching on YouTube at for example Indian Clubs / Clubbells and Macebell hammers / Sledgehammesr / Steel maces.
Training with clubbells and indian clubs is training where body and mind play together. The training tools have a meditative dimension and work according to the principle "mindfulness in motion", which helps to counteract and prevent stress.
You can train with clubbells in just a little space - so it is obvious as home training. When the weather allows it, move it out, for example in the garden, in the park or take them with you to a holiday home - it is always nice with fresh air and plenty of space for exercises with large swings.
With Clubbells you can improve your stability in the body. Indian clubs are suitable for cross-training and are good for contributing to functional strength in important muscle groups such as forearms and the upper body supporting muscles.
The brain controls the many positions by directing and coordinating the muscles. The cooperation and the strength of the muscles are the prerequisite for optimal stability. You can train balance and body stability with Clubbells, in a gentle way.
The training can be supplemented with Thick bar grips, which provide a wider grip, to activate other muscle groups primarily in the forearm - see more here.
See also the very popular adjustable club bells, Pahlavandles, which are actually just a few handles that can be put on quite ordinary recycled bottles. Convenient for home training. It is also convenient to take Pahlavandles with you, for example in the holiday luggage, where the Pahlavandles handles do not take up much space - the bottles themselves are available at the destination. They can be refilled with eg sand or water. Last but not least, there is Thor's hammer, which is a bit reminiscent of the above in terms of the exercises you can do. And yet the Thor's hammer is entirely itself in terms of design. Like Pahlavandles, the weight of Thor's Hammer is adjustable so you can target your exercises to the current load.
