The steel mace half moon is another great exercise I picked up from the guys over at New Breed Macebell. The Half Moon is a dynamic frontal plane movement that can be used for cardio conditioning, sport specific training or as a transitional exercise within a mace flow.

Teaching Points

  1. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart.
  2. Keep your spine neutral throughout the movement.
  3. Keep your core braced.
  4. Grip the macebell in the rack position.
  5. Drop the macebell to one side, step into a half lateral lunge and catch the mace at the bottom position.
  6. Flip the macebell back up into the rack, control and stabilize the mace.
  7. Then repeat the movement on the other side.
