No, I'm not talking about shufflin to the beat of your favorite dub-step tune. I'm talking about century-old training tools called Indian clubs. If you have not seen these in action, you are missing out! They resemble wooden bowling pins and range in length depending on the weight. Whirling clubs brings many benefits to the anatomy--most of which are felt in the upper body. Among the most notable are stronger rotator cuffs, improved shoulder flexibility, upper body muscular endurance, enhanced core strength, and reduction in injury risk for the rotator cuff. Clubs also bode well for people confined to a desk chair for long periods of time on a daily basis. This has a tendency to produce rounded shoulders. In this case, the clubs help return your upper body postural alignment to normal. As you can see, club use is a win win for everybody!
Once you master the five basic movements, you then progress to a series of variations. After you get good at these, you have nothing left to do but move in a smooth, graceful, fluidic motion that is truly a thing of beauty to watch. If you want to get going on the clubs, I'd be more than happy to facilitate the way.
Have a great day,
