Clubs and CONDITIONING ...

Lots has been made of (for those that lift weights) how "heavy is needed to build muscle". 

How you go heavier and heavier, injuries piling up regardless, form notwithstanding - until you sit on a bench and "pump and isolate" the nth strand of the bicep and so forth - ugh. 

Heavy weights are good, but certainly not isolation wise! 

Its GREAT if you can lift the fender off your truck for instance wthout external help. A little old lady once did just that - no kidding. 

But really - training wise, the most important muscles are the BRAIN and the HEART. As always, in life as well and last night, another one of those on the spur of the moment ideas I had to do 500 swings non stop with an Indian club right OUT Of the shower, not before (I didnt get a good workout in apparently before that!) - really hit the spot. 

The video shows me going at 70-80% of my capacity. 

I stopped at 400 reps, but I had a 1000 more left in the tank - easy. 

And while 10 kgs is anything but easy to swing for most folks - it is "medium" for me - not easy not tough - try doing it with 30 kgs. 

A weight most scoff at in the gym, yet, you do high rep workouts without stopping with these, and they make the SWEAT pour like nothing else my friend. 

Club swinging is not included in Corrugated Core - but it builds that for sure! (proof's in the pudding - no pun). 

If you want that six pack from hell, a rock hard "cast iron" midsection, muscles that ripple under the skin, a toned midsection, sides, lower back - well, there's many ways to get it, but a club is an indispensable tool in this process that should never be ignored. More importantly, you must swing it RIGHT or not at all. 

There's a lot of material out there on club swinging, some of it good, most BAD and wrong - especially the "arching the lower" back as you swing (which is OK when you begin, but shouldn't be the long term focus). 

For best results, you do these with legs as straight as possible, and keep the back neutral. The motion comes from core, grip and ... CORE! 

much like if you were do those "hoopla swings" with those rings - if you get my meaning. 

More to the point, this sort of training not only builds a ferocious grip, but it affects the BRAIN positively too. 

Thick grips on pull-up bars do as well, but you'll find it tough with these mudgars since the grip is already very thick on most of them. 

We dont make 'em as yet. 

We will in the future, but for now - some of the old time training info that Indian wrestlers had my friend, in fact MOST of it - is pure GOLD, and has never been revealed to the public - before now - and yours truly is obviously in an unique position to do so. 

Place your pre-order for Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness NOW -this course is truly the "Mecca and Medina" of old time strongman training, and the volume of info in there is just mind boggling and staggering to be honest. 

Do so NOW. 

And get back to me, so we can put you on a special pre order only list for that course!
