Indian clubs are a fantastic tool for wrist, elbow and shoulder mobility, but too lightweight to be used as a strength training tool. They are also a great tool to use as a warm up to lubricate the joints before moving onto traditional strength exercises or as a primer to better groove the path to mimic heaver club movements.
They are designed to be an extension of your arm and help increase range of motion and blood flow.
Made from wood or polyurethane, Indian clubs usually weigh between 0.5kg-1kg.
Indian Clubs are not about lifting heavy, but rather to demonstrate mobility, speed and fluidity. The faster you swing a club, the heavier it will feel.
Start slow and break the movements down into segments, then build up speed as you feel more comfortable. If at any stage your form begins to suffer, slow down and start again.
