The steel mace power shovel is an exercise I learned from New Breed Macebell, it’s a similar exercise to the steel mace grave digger but more dynamic, works the legs more and even more metabolically challenging.

Teaching Points

  1. Stand in a split stance.
  2. Grip the mace with one hand on the end and the other hand about 2/3rds down the handle.
  3. Point the mace head down and simulate a shovelling movement.
  4. At the top of the movement spear the mace upwards so that both hands are now at the end of the handle.
  5. Simultaneously move the back leg forward so you have both feet hip width apart.
  6. Reverse the movement and return to the starting position.
