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.

I get asked what my favorite mace and club exercises are, and while there are so many good exercises to choose from, if I had to narrow down my favorites, these would make the top 3 list;
1) The Touch and Go
This exercise requires a bit of coordination plus the skills to execute a proper mace launch, a crossbody toss, and a solid 360 from a moving start. It is both done for endurance, and strength building. I have done this up to 75 sets of 4 reps with .30 rest between and also with a heavy mace using a 5X5 strength protocol. This is a solid move and should be incorporated into every mace athlete’s regiment.
2) The Inside Mill
If you’ve trained with me, or just know me, you know I really like doing mills. This is short and sweet, but “how much do you mill, bro?”
3) The 2 Hand Gama Cast
Solid shoulder strengthening, muscle making, heavy metal, cranking out reps, killing it with a puddle of sweat on the floor. Gama Casts will make you freaking strong and supple. Do them nice and square. This is my all time favorite club exercise.
And there you have it, folks. My top 3 Club and Mace Exercises. Swing often, swing heavy, and don’t forget to sign up for the Adex email list below or to the right >
Steel mace and steel club endurance and cardio work is easy to do. To begin, choose 2 exercises that are big muscle movers such as squats, front swings, 360’s, or 2 hand mills. Lighten up the load so that performing one of those exercises for 50 reps is obtainable. Now, go for it! As soon as you get to 50, change the exercise, preferably without resting (rest if needed) to the next exercise for a count of 50 reps. If more exercises are need to increase variety or specific areas need to be trained, add those in. Beginners should try to move continuously for 10 minutes, advanced try for 30 minutes. Fire breathers set your timers at 45 minutes. This is a great time to focus on good form and better those patterns. Be sure to have plenty of water nearby.
Steel club and maces offer an alternative for those who have issues with running or who just don’t like to. Many trainees who don’t have the ability to run can get in the necessary endurance work with steel club or steel maces. This is a welcome alternative for many because, if need be, the upper body can be isolated to stay away from injuries with the legs.
This opens up a whole new area for those with the inability to train their legs due to physical issues. Another benefit is the constant moving of the arms overhead when training upper body dominant exercises to increase the challenge for the trainee. Add to that goodness the fact that Adex Clubs & Maces Adjust to have the best weight choice for the user!
