New Way to Swing a Mace?


Stronger Grip Mace / Core Club

You guys know how much I like Mace Swinging.

I’ve written about it here a few times…

You guys also know that I have a pretty sick and twisted mind and enjoy making basic lifts much more difficult and more challenging…


Well, I have decided to combine my loves of Mace work and subjecting myself to Brutality
.

Now, in Basic Mace Swings, upon returning to the order position, the hands are pulled down in front of the face and near the chest or even the navel area in order to prepare for the next repetition.

When pulling the hands down in this manner, if you are performing continuous repetitions in the same direction, this pull to order can be used to generate quite a bit of momentum. This helps you get more repetitions and perform them much more quickly, as opposed to pausing there or changing to the opposite direction.

When I was training with the Mace the other day, I decided to eliminate (as much as I could) the pull to the order position and leave my hands as high as possible while still continuing the revolutions of the Mace Head.

I had varying degrees of success with this method, because as heavy as my Mace is loaded, I just can not keep my hands behind my head.

At lower weights and leverages, such as using a Sledge Hammer instead of the Mace, I know I can walk down to my garage gym and do it right now, but currently I am not strong enough to do it with the SG Mace as heavy as it is right now.

Some day, dudes…

Here’s the video:

Anybody ever try this before? Is this an already established technique? I’d love to hear what guys like Scott Sonnon, Jake Shannon, Ryan Pitts, or Kevin Wikse have to say about this.

I strongly suggest if you have a Mace, Club, Sledge or any other form of long leverage implements, that you give this variation a try. It is much more challenging on the Grip and Lower Arms than the conventional 360-degree revolution style of swinging.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

All the best in your training.

Jedd
