    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Is it time for a new Clubbell thread?

    So...

    Anybody use these?http://www.clubbell.tv/images/hollycover.gif


    I've seen a lot of hype, and a few unhelpful threads so far from a couple of years ago.

    Anybody have a specific Clubbell (or Indian Club, Iranian Club, whatever) workout they like?

    Testimonials?

    Thoughts?

    I have a pair of the 15 lbs. I haven't had them for about 2 years (they were back in Hawaii), but I brought them back with me on my last trip. When I was using them regularly, my grip strength and grip endurance were fantastic. I was regularly fighting with Dogzilla, and about 2 weeks after I started using them, he made a comment about me seeming to be able to hit harder. So for the FMAs, there is a direct carryover effect.

    On a personal note, I just like the way my shoulders feel when I'm using them regularly. Much more resilient, with a loose strength. Good range of flexibility and power generation. But I reiterate that I am a stickfighter first and foremost, so my criteria may be different than yours.

    Ha - ok, fair enough - i knew at least 1/2 the posts on this thread would be rediculous.

    So poidog - what were your favorite movements/techniques with the clubbells?

    Can you remember any workouts you particularly liked?

    Did you generally do a whole clubbell workout or integrate it into a larger circuit training routine?

    @poidog

    I second the post above. I'm a FMAer and Kettlebell user, and my gym has two 15lb clubbells as well. I don't have any idea how to use them- none. It's weight... on a stick... and intuitively that makes me think it would be good for FMA... but that's as far as I ever get. Any/all feedback would be appreciated muchly, even if it is nothing more than a link to a good page.

    I tied a stick to 2 cars, but I'm still not strong enough to use my new clubbells.

    Ok... well I'm still hoping that some experienced users might contribute their experiences w/ these training tools...

    But for anyone who cares, I found a link that might be useful:

    Introductory Clubbell Workout

    Now, keep in mind that I've only done this workout 1x w/ 1 10# clubbell (homemade), so I can't really review it.

    I'm going to continue doing this 2-3x/week for a few weeks, then maybe I'll write up a review.

    We'll see.

    Ok, time for a few more links...

    Oldschool (1860s) Clubbell Workout #1

    Oldschool (1880s) Clubbell Workout #2

    1949 YMCA Clubbell Workout

    Ok... so here's the way people have historically used clubbells (apparantly).
