>We have long been saying that adding Indian Clubs into your workout would be a smart choice for every athlete and here’s yet another example of why: The March, 15, 1934 edition of the Ludington (MI) Daily News contains an interesting feature on the pre-season regimen of the Western State Teachers College Baseball team. Their coach at the time, Judson Hyames, had his players engage in extensive Indian club training before their began their heavy throwing. According to the article, Hyames believed that Indian club work help build wrist suppleness, strength and flexibility.
Hyames certainly knew what he was talking about since the Western State team was undefeated for two years prior (and would go on to finish 14-1 that season.) Hyames was 166-62-2 as a head coach and the baseball field at what is now known as Western Michigan University is named in his honor. If you are looking for an edge on the diamond, it would certainly be a good idea to add some Indian club swinginginto the mix.
