The Indian Club: Ancient Martial Arts Tool for Fluid Movement, Strength and Joint Health Becomes Favored Secret Weapon Amongst the Elite for Refining Athletic Performance and Restoring Lost Function…
Like the Kettlebell, the ancient Indian Club was a once-prized exercise tool that fell on hard times. Once a favored training device of royalty, military, elite athletes and enthusiastic amateurs alike, the club became relegated, by the 1930s, to dusty attics, damp basements and the moldy memories of old-school fitness diehards.
In its final, most refined incarnation, the Indian Club had been developed, in turn, by British, German and American military and civilian experts into a highly sophisticated system of restorative health drills. The unique circular weight lifting movements of the Indian Club were considered to promote not only greater overall strength and flexibility but to act as a magnificent "neural tune-up" for the whole body. Sadly, as the exercise community changed its focus, the Indian Club—and its myriad of health benefits—all but disappeared. Just like the kettlebell.
Yet Indian Club Swinging Exercises—in just minutes a days—WILL:
Strengthen your back, shoulders, pecs, biceps, triceps, forearms, grip—and most importantly—your connective tissue, ligaments and tendons
Enhance your shoulder efficiency, mobility, elbow and wrist flexibility—and range of motion
Develop your grace, coordination, balance and agility
Counteract the negative impact of too many hours sitting hunched at a computer keyboard
For ultimate durability, hand feel and superb balance Dragon Door recommends the 21st century breakthrough in Indian Club design created by modern Indian Club master and pioneer, Dr. Ed Thomas. These beautiful black resin Indian Clubs are virtually impervious to the elements, dimensionally stable and will last you a lifetime. They look and feel... fantastic.
(These Indian Clubs are made of reinforced, talc-filled polypropylene—a space age material providing maximum durability that won't crack, break, chip or fade/discolor over time. This polymer is comprised of specially formulated molecular properties and additives during its manufacture, which make these clubs virtually impervious to the elements: sun, water, heat and cold. That's why these Indian Clubs are the Dragon Door choice: they meet our love for toughness, hardness, tensile strength—and superb craftsmanship!)
Which size Indian Club should you get? Begin with the 1lb Indian Club, whatever your current strength, to ensure you perfect your technique. When you are ready to progress, the 2lb Indian Clubs will help you develop additional strength and power. Both size clubs will not only increase shoulder and extreme range of motion strength but also enhance your grip, wrist, and forearm strength. Both sizes of Indian Clubs will help you reduce injuries due to the full circular movement patterns.
