The British in India noticed that the local men, especially the wrestlers, were
particularly strong and well built individuals and also noticed that the use of clubs was
fairly common. Thus, Indian club swinging was introduced into the British armed
forces as part of the physical training regime undertaken by the troops.
In this course we will use the clubs to increase flexibility and range of motion in the upper back and shoulders. You will need Indian clubs for this course. I recommend using 3/4 pound for women, and 1 pound for men. I have some links below for the clubs I use in the studio.
The classes are 10 minutes each. This is enough for most seniors to limber and strengthen their shoulders on a daily basis.
Note: Indian Clubs are a new motion for your shoulders. Start with 3 – 5 minutes/day the first few days, then build up to 10 minutes, so your shoulders don’t get sore.
