BENEFITS OF INDIAN CLUB TRAINING

WHAT ARE INDIAN CLUBS?

Indian clubs are great for improving mobility and resilience to injury in the shoulders, elbows and wrists.

Everyone from the general fitness enthusiast to elite athletes can benefit from regular club swinging.

They fit very nicely into warm ups, recovery training, movement prep and skills training.

The clubs themselves are lightweight, portable, can be used at home or on the go… plus they’re heaps of fun!

WHAT SIZE SHOULD I START WITH?

Indian clubs are not heavy, they’re fast. A skipping rope isn’t heavy but they make your feet quick, same with Indian clubs… they’re not heavy but make your hands fast.

If you’ve never used Indian clubs before we recommend starting light with a pair of 0.5kg or 1kg clubs.

The centrifugal force makes the clubs feel heavier especially when swung through different planes of motion.

Work on the technique first and groove the path before moving onto heavier clubs once you’re proficient.

INDIAN CLUBS VS STEEL CLUBS​

Although Indian clubs look similar to steel clubs, they are very different training tools.

The much lighter Indian clubs are made from wood or plastic and typically weigh between 0.25kg-1.5kg.

The focus of Indian club training is on mobility, fluidity and speed making them excellent for rehab, prehab, warm ups and improving shoulder mobility.

Steel clubs are much heavier and as the name implies, made of steel.

They weigh anywhere from 2kg-20kg and are a strength conditioning tool excellent for developing shoulder strength, grip strength, core strength and can be used for conditioning much like any other free weight.

If your goal is rehab/prehab and to improve mobility, choose Indian clubs.

If your goal is to develop strength, choose steel clubs.

HISTORY OF INDIAN CLUB TRAINING

As the name implies, Indian clubs originated in India where they have been used for thousands of years.

They were originally used as a weapon, but in the 13th century it’s thought they were being used as a form of exercise.

During the 17th century the British colonised India and observed the local Indian wrestlers training with clubs.

The practice of club swinging was adopted by the British military and it quickly spread throughout the rest of Europe, then later the US.

In recent years Indian clubs have made a comeback, especially with athletes and fitness enthusiasts that require superior circular shoulder strength, grip strength and greater core strength.

BAMBOO

There are many different types of wood used to make Indian clubs and the wood used largely depends on where the club is manufactured.

We chose to make our Indian clubs from bamboo as it’s strong, durable, and sustainable.

Bamboo is the Worlds fastest growing plant and grows 15 times faster than other lumbar like pine. Bamboo is easy to grow, renewable and requires zero chemicals and pesticides.

It’s also incredibly strong and durable with;

  • A higher tensile strength than many alloys of steel.
  • A higher compressive strength than many mixtures of concrete.
  • And, a higher strength-to-weight ratio than graphite.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Indian clubs generally come in 3 different price categories. Polypropylene (hard plastic) clubs are massed produced and are the cheapest, then you have wooden Indian clubs (like ours) that are medium priced, lastly are the antique Indian clubs that tend to be quite expensive.

If your goal is rehab, prehab, warm ups or to improve shoulder mobility… choose the Indian clubs. If your goal is to develop strength, choose the steel clubs.

Indian clubs are not heavy, they’re fast. If your Indian club is too heavy you’ll sacrifice speed. Start light with a pair 0.5kg or 1kg clubs and master the movements properly. Then, once you have you proficient technique, move up to the 1.5kg clubs.

Indian clubs strengthen your shoulders, back, pecs, triceps, biceps and forearm flexors.

Indian clubs typically weigh between 0.5kg-1.5kg.

These clubs are beautiful. Well made. Well balanced and lots cheaper than other wooden clubs. I initially bought a pair of 1.5KG but they were too heavy for me to comfortably learn with so I purchased the O.5 and 1.O KG versions. Now I have all three at a reasonable price. Very happy. Recommend!

There was a bit of a delivery delay at customs upon arrival in New Zealand because the invoice was not included with the shipment. But that was sent quickly. The Indian clubs are great. Great for a warm up prior to a work out or for loosening the shoulders after several hours of computer work. And they much more aesthetically pleasing than the plastic clubs on Amazon.

Just to let you know – these arrived about 10 days ago and, like all your clubs, they’re great. Really high quality and nicely put together. I use them to warm up and loosen up before doing exercising with kettlebells or heavier clubs, and they’re perfect for that. Thanks!
