Super long quarantine binge video to watch about Quality Testing and packaging modifications for ADEX Maces and Clubs. It’s a long process but shows what happens after a customer send in their order. Simply put, I am proud of the ADEX Brand and want to share what goes on. Also, this is to inspire any entrepreneur who wants a look into business and what needs to be done.
In this video Don Giafardino, Owner of ADEX Clubs, demonstrates the Mace Dead Stop Pullover. The Dead Stop means to start from a dead stop so no momentum is carried from one rep to the other. Begin with your mace in the bottom of a 360 and behind one shoulder, pre-load your body by rotating that shoulder forward from the waist, swing and draw the mace over the opposite side shoulder into the catch position. Repeat.
This exercise develops the torque to graduate to heavier loads in your mace training or can be used to develop that same power for heavy halo/shield casts for club training. The length of the mace handle increases the amount of torque required vs the shorter club handle.
Steel mace training is growing in popularity, and with more gyms offering mace training, the competitions, and the growth of the community in the fitness world, it makes sense to add it into your regular workouts for fun and healthy shoulder benefit.
Exercise Difficulty 8 out of 10. Not recommended for novice trainers. Use these strategically in your training when it’s time to train heavy – this isn’t a beginner exercise.

In this video we breakdown the One Hand Side Swing. Once you are comfortable with the 2 Handed Side Swing, try to do it 1 handed.
The One Hand Side Swing (1HSS) is an important component when doing complete rotational exercises such as 1H Mills and 1H Hammer Swings as it is the bottom of these exercises. 1HSS builds the strength and timing for hip drive to move heavier clubs upward. This lateral hip drive also translates over into mace training for more power when doing 360’s and 10 to 2’s. Many people lack adequate lateral hip control, mobility, and stability.
How to Use Adex Adjustable Clubs in real fitness workouts. The One Hand Swing to Clean is not only the way to get your club into the “Side Ready Position” to do exercises such as Mills, Gamma Casts and Halos but it is a great skill builder and fat burner due to the dynamics involved and also the recruitment of the posterior chain.
Be Sure to Always Swing Safely – Keep shoulders pressed down and good posture throughout the movements. Adjust your Adex Club to a weight that is challenging but also comfortable to work with. As always, when learning a new club or mace pattern, practice good form for low rep numbers, 5 or under, until proper skill and neuropaths are built. Remember that practice makes permanent, so build the pattern then add the weight.
