Are you using your Adex Mace for more than 360s or 10-2s? It’s a misconception that a steel mace can’t be used for more than a couple of exercises. Adex Maces fit the bill even better because they ADJUST! That’s right – add or remove weight in seconds to tailor the workout to your specific needs.
This video is about keeping proper posture when performing steel club front swipes or strikes. Use these tips when utilizing this exercise:
1. Bring the elbow straight down during the down phase of the exercise.
2. Keep the elbow pointing forward throughout the exercise.
3. Brace the core to avoid hollowing the low back.
Owner of ADEX Club Don Giafardino showcases a workout utilizing a club front swing and a one-hand halo. In the video, Don is using an ADEX Adjustable Club that can be utilized with both exercises, and transitioned into a heavier or lighter weight.
During the front swing, keep the spine long and focus on loading the glutes and hamstrings during the hip hinge. It’s important to note that in this exercise we are utilizing a hip hinge and not a squat. During the swing, try to have your arms long and swing no higher than eye level.
With an ADEX Club you can adjust your weight during your rest period. If utilizing another club, have it handy to transition to and give yourself the appropriate amount of rest.
Once transitioned to the one hang halo, start in a ready position with the core braced. Drop the weight over your opposite shoulder and come back to your starting position with the elbow in a 90-degree angle.

Mace and Club training is a fun and challenging way to increase strength, endurance, and hone martial art skills. Adex Maces and Clubs make this type of training more efficient by allowing the user to change the weight setting, quickly and easily, by hand to add or subtract weight. This gives the user the range of 10 maces or clubs combined in one unit.
Owner of ADEX Club, Don Giafardino, shows an effective upper body workout using one weighted club. All sets have a one-minute rest time AFTER both the right and left movements have been performed.
Clubs are a beautiful way to strengthen and develop power throughout the body while increasing cognitive awareness. Train as if you were training with a weapon for battle. Perform crisp clean movements, keeping shoulders packed down and good posture.
