The regular swinging of Indian Clubs is a fantastic means of building shoulder strength and stability and every athlete can benefit from doing so. This pictures dates to 1906.
"I hate 'em" ... that was my first thought when I heard that our manufacturer was switching over to a line of injection molded high- density "practice" Indian Clubs.
It should be pretty obvious that I'm oldschool all the way and figured that if there was not going to be any more wooden Indian Clubs, that we were going to drop the clubs off the site altogether... and yet another great strength tradition would have to once again, fade into obscurity.
...As folks sometimes do, I passed judgement without even giving them a try
first. The manufacturer smartly sent me a few pairs to try out for
myself before making up my mind... although once they arrived I promptly threw the package in the corner without even opening it and pretty much
forgot about them. As fate would have it, not too long afterwards I was stuck at the
office late during a blizzard (this happened a few winters back) and not having
access to my normal set of clubs, figured I would give them a shot...
To say I was pleasantly surprised by the new clubs would be one hell of an understatement! In fact, I went out and swung them right there in the falling snow. The new clubs were not "el-cheapo" which I had originally envisioned them to be
but more like the material of a high-quality hand tool -- the feel was
good, the balance was good and I had a new favorite piece of equipment. Today I keep a pair in my truck so I never have to miss a workout.
Yes, I will always like the wooden clubs, and if it were up to me, those
would never go out of style, but these new high-density practice clubs
do have advantages which the wood clubs can't match... and which may
make them a better choice for a lot of people...
Keep reading to see what I mean:
As I have mentioned above and many times over in my daily emails and elsewhere, I have a soft spot for the oldschool wooden clubs just like they had a century ago. However, the new ones also do have their advantages:
1.) Two Different Sizes: There are 1-pound clubs and 2-pound clubs sizes (but don't let the "light" weight fool you). We HIGHLY recommend going with the 1-pound size first and waiting on the 2-pound clubs until you become more practice and whow what you are in for.
2.) Durability: These clubs aren't indestructible but they are a lot tougher than the wooden clubs which can crack or chip if they are drop them or accidentally knock them together, and no need to worry if you want to keep them in your gym bag
Ideal for group or class use - every club is identical, so everyone can grap a pair without needing to worry about warping over time, chipping, or making sure they have a perfectly matched set (one reason why these clubs have been very popular with the Military)
3.) Bulk Pricing: That's right, unlike our classic wooden indian clubs, we can offer specialty pricing in case you want to order several pairs at once. If you are interested in teaching groups, teams or schools, this is an option that you don't want to miss. In fact, this was one of the biggest reasons for creating these clubs in the first place.
If you are looking to purchase more than EIGHT pairs of clubs, (any combination of weights) please contact us for a freight quote and other ordering details.
I have been swinging Indian Clubs for
many years know and I must say that I thoroughly enjoy it. I also have a number
of clubs of different weights and styles in my personal collection so I have a
lot of different options that I can go with at any given point in
Believe it or not I do the vast majority of my club swinging
workouts with the 1-pound clubs and if you are just getting started, this is the
level that I strongly recommend you use first. The reasons behind this are
simple, first of all there are specifics to swinging Indian Clubs that you
should learn. If you attempt to "muscle it" -- as is often the case with clubs
that are too heavy -- then you will also lose out on many of the benefits.
The other thing to keep in mind is that we are dealing with leverage
here. Two pounds may not sound very heavy but take the length of your arm, the
length and weight of the club and the fact that you will be swinging it around
your body at a vigorous pace and the "inch pounds" start to add up very quickly.
