I bring them to my tournaments. Thanks again! Slavic Retro Fitness Craze. When I do Clubbell Training two or three times per week it improves my cardio for my fight, my grip, and my forearm and shoulder strength for fighting.
Clubbell deserves special thanks. And we are sure all other sports will be able to use Circular Strength developed by the Clubbells. The parts of the body we experience strength gains are: hands, wrists, forearms, upper-arms, shoulders, rotator cuffs, upper back, upper chest and especially the core of the body… At this time, our offensive line coach, Steed Lobotsky all-American lineman from Air Force Academy has been using them twice per week.
Steed loves the clubbells. Their wrestlers were incredibly well conditioned, and literally throwing their opponents off the mats. Knowing that there was more than meets the eye, I investigated.
In , I was in the fight of my life against my Russian counter-part in the final match at the Olympics for University athletes, the Universiade, also known as World University Games, held in Montreal, Quebec. Unfortunately, my opponent was the better athlete that day, and landed me in an arm-bar. In his grip, my arm shattered under the precision force of his technique, as a squelched my pain since making any noise while in a joint lock means that you submit. Even a grunt equals forfeit.
That silver medal was the most important victory of my career, because it reminded me of the value of connective tissue strength. When your sport involves being able to grip a man and throw him to the ground, the inability to hold anything is career ending. I had no intention of quitting martial art. In fact, I won Grand National Championships the very next year, and the international championships of the Americas on the following.
And to prove my methods, 12 years later, I came out of retirement and won the International Chinese Kickboxing Championships - called Sanshou - at the age of 36, with only 6 weeks to prepare for a fighting sport I had never competed in.
How did I go from a genetically-inferior, broken child to international champion in two different forms of martial arts? Well, all of the conventional training approaches failed. Cardio, bodybuilding, powerlifting, and cross-training each were created within the past years. None of these conventional methods are appropriate for combat sports - which are the ultimate test of physical fitness. As the USA National Coach, I sought out forging a conditioning program that was specifically designed to increase the safety, performance, health and career longevity of myself and my athletes.
With my academic background in physical education, I infused modern sport science into this montage of scattered ancient physical disciplines to create a systematic proprietary system to combative preparation. Starting in , I was exposed to kettlebells in the 6 years of training that I did back and forth throughout Russia with the national and Olympic coaches of various combat sports such as Sambo, Boxing, Kickboxing and Bayonet Fencing. They complement each other beautifully, if you like multiple modalities.
This leverage challenge produces enormous neurological force without injury to connective tissue caused by conventional weights. When you lift weights, to increase force production you must add weight. And the greater the actual weight lifted, the more damaging compression to soft, connective tissue.
This is the reason that conventional weightlifters are riddled with soft tissue, joint and spinal injuries. I had done them all, and nothing made me so strong, so quickly and so injury free as the Clubbell! The more the actual weight rests on the skeletal structure, and the greater that actual weight is, the more that soft connective tissue such as around the joints and the spine itself accumulates trauma.
Swinging weight increases torque. Increasing torque increases force production. Conventional weight lifting is restricted to linear increases of force by adding weight. Superior force production means superior strength conditioning in a fraction of the time and without the litany of injuries associated with conventional weight training. Finally, and most importantly, conventional weight training can only be moved in one or two dimensions.
This limited range of motion attempts to isolate particular muscles. Isolation, however, is a myth long since debunked. The body is composed of an interconnected web: a double-bag system. Where that outer bag is tacked down to the inner bag, we call those "muscle attachments" or "insertion points.
Steven Levin named Biotensegrity. My focus has been as a basic scientist as I did not want to limit biotensegrity to the narrow field of what I know as a clinician. Thank you! Steven Levin, MD www.
This increases soft tissue elasticity rather than traumatizing it like one or two dimensional movements in conventional weight-lifting. Moving in three dimension washing the joint capsules with nutrition and lubrication, breaks up adhesions, smoothes off boney profiles abating osteoarthritis , and distracts the bones abating osteoporosis.
Conventional weight-lifting equipment cannot do this. Furthermore, all exercises are full bodily intensive: creating incredibly powerful glutes, hams, quads and calves from the leg drive. Many of my workshops are full of "baby boomers" who are looking to become pain free, agile and graceful, as well as strong, powerful and fit.
However, my seminars are filled to sold out capacity with doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, strength coaches, professional athletes, fitness models and personal trainers. It can benefit everyone. If You Want to Lose Weight and Reduce your waist line by up to 5 inches one client lost 5 inches in one month.
Reduce body fat and weight two clients lost 70 pounds each last year. Improved strength and function of your internal organs. This means improved breathing, circulation, digestion and elimination of toxic waste from the body. These may improve general performance, but execute essentially in a one dimensional plane, which can be understood as Linear Strength Training. However, during practice or competition, every sport and physical activity demands movement in one, two and three planes.
Developing tri-planar strength of the prime movers increases stability, enhances injury prevention, multiplies force production abilities and most importantly, stimulates the neuromuscular patterns required of athletes. Otherwise, their performance suffers greatly and injury likelihood significantly increases.

Are Clubbells For YOU?
Not long ago, I was experiencing the pleasures of sledgehammering down several walls to be clear, dear reader, I was renovating, not attacking random walls. While in the throes of gleefully pulverizing drywall, I began to think about what a great workout this type of implement would provide for people requiring rotational strength, such as in golf, tennis, and martial arts. Weighted at one end, the sledgehammer provided an unequal load, and swung in a circular, cross-body motion, it provided plenty of work for arms, back, shoulders, and midsection. As it happened, shortly afterwards, I found out about clubbells.
Kigagami Any help is always appreciated! I will also provide a basic description, but nothing beats a picture, except a video of course. At BarBend his writing focuses a little more on nutrition and long-form content with a heaping dose of strength training. Featured image courtesy of antoniodisidoro. T raining with weighted clubs has been around for centuries. Return it to call to order and squat at once. The end result left me a hefty 89 kg at the age of 14 and this was not muscle mass.
