    Indian Club Training Questions

    Has anyone ever gotten into Indian Club training? I did a little reading about it, and it seems interesting. It used to be quite common training, but there are differing thoughts about why it largely disappeared. Did the arrival of readily available and sophisticated weight lifting equipment spell their doom?

    What benefits, if any, did you see in working with the clubs? Increased upper body flexibility? Strength?

    What weight clubs did you use? Is heavier better? Is it best to start light and work up to heavy? Or are light clubs enough? Or does it depend on if you want to achieve strength or flexibility?

    What exercises did you do with the clubs, and where did you find them?

    The clubs seem to be largely marketed at martial artists these days as opposed to those generally interested in fitness. Is there a special benefit for martial artists, or are we just a well-known cash-cow for fitness fads?

    Thanks in advance.

    some threads to start out with.... I've been more interested in kettlebells personally, but I'll wait until I find them locally, unless I bought the kettle bell handle for use with plates...

    Don't get hung up on the tool. It's what you do with it that counts.

    Seems to me that Indian clubs might be useful for grappling and stick fighting. Grip strength is a good thing.

    I have been using some 20# clubbells for the past couple of years. Initially they were the heaviest twenty pounds I ever picked up, now they are light and serve as active recovery tools. They are a great training tool. They are fabulous for developing flexibility and strength in the shoulder girdle. They have helped rehab my shoulder and are a tremendous grip and forearm developer. They are however expensive and for my money I would rather have an olympic barbell set, a kettlebell, or a pair of adjustable dumbells if money is an issue.

    The clubs were originally used prior to barbells and dumbbells as military training in India. Some used clubs in excess of 200#s! There is a good book about indian club training I will check the author and get back to ya and all of Scott Sonnens stuff is really good if you are looking for instructionals.

    definetly worth the money. A cheap alternative is to buy hollow plastic toy bats and fill them with sand then duct tape the hell out of em. A bit crude but under $10 and you have a pair of clubbells. The smaller bats last forever but the big fat albert bats get to heavy for the plastic to handle.
