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.
Putting together a mace flow or Kata can sometimes be a daunting task. Here are three simple aggressive moves; the Thrust, the Uppercut, and the 1-Hand 360 blended together to demonstrate an actual combat scenario.
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.

Give Mace and Club Front Squats a try in your next lower body training session. These are great for strengthening the legs, and for both real life and fitness training. Using a club or mace to perform your squats can improve form for barbell squats or strongman type lifts. For building a great squat, or as an additional exercise to add to your club and mace training, begin by holding the club or mace resting on a shoulder then work on your leg and hip form. As your form improves, squat with the club/mace upright but close to the body working on keeping the torso upright utilizing core stability. Once that form is good, begin pressing the club/mace away from your body until full are extension and an upright back is achieved. If you’re trying to improve your barbell squat or build strength in the core, begin the same way as described above.
