    Default Indian Clubs

    Has anybody used Indian Clubs? What do they work? Opinions on if they are worth trying?

    I use them on occasion. I can tell you from experience that they are an excellent rehab for shoulder injuries. It is something you can do on your off days as a form of active recovery.

    I have the 1 and 2 pound clubs. I have used them but not lately. So many other things to do and not enough time..hehe! I also have a Bulgarian Training Bag that sits in the corner for now that I wish I had more time for - so sad. The clubs are worth trying especially if you need some re-hab or just need to loosen up shoulders that are overly stiff. If you get them start with the 1 pounders. Also the clubs work the hand to eye coordination. Clubs are great if your interest lies in MMA and other fighting methods. Just don't club any baby seals or PETA will get mad!..hehe!You can buy them or even make them - I believe youtube shows you how to make them..Dennis

    I use them before every workout as a short warmup in addition to some other stretches. I find that they really warm up my shoulders and arms. I have 1lb and 3lb pair. You can get more complicated with them in a way that challenges hand to eye coordination or you can just keep it more simple which is what I do.

    I 'll tell you, they are not easy to use right.LOL, but they are worth the money and time in my book. I always use them when my shoulder start acting up. I know, I know, if I used them often it would be better but I always get caught up with other things and forget till my shoulders remind me.

    I am big fan of indian clubs, both light and heavy. The lighter ones 1-3lb I use for mobility and recovery and the heavy ones, I got a pair of 15kg clubs, I use those as a part of upper body strength training.

    The heavy clubs 15-50lbs or more are called Clubbells for those who may be interested. I almost got me a pair of clubbells but chose the kettlebell as my primary means of strength/condx instead..Dennis

    As far as I am aware that is a brand-name of a type of club. Heavy clubs have been around for hundreds of years. I've been hoping to get my hands on a pair of heavy wooden clubs, but no luck so far. They ain't cheap to make.

    If you know somebody who has a lathe, then they will be cheap to make. You can look up your local chapter of the American Woodturner's Association, and the local chapter president can help you find a turner who is willing to do some custom work.

    I'm planning on turning some when I get some free time, but between work and family, that probably won't be for many months .

    Clubbells are Sonnon's thing. They are high quality and fun to work with but other people are also making heavier clubs as well. I haven't used any others but I do like the clubbells.
