Hey it’s Nick Ortego here. I’m going
to show you how to use Indian clubs to
work on some forearm muscles that often get
overlooked. It’s the muscle that moves
your pinky side closer to your forearm
bone, like this kind of like the motion
you do when you hammer. We’re going to
add resistance to that motion and the way
we’re going to do it is to grab the
Indian clubs, kind of in an inverted way.
The thumb is close to
the little knob on the end of the Indian
club. I’m just going to have my arms
down by my sides and then I’m going to
lift the head of the Indian club and
then lower, it let it drop. I can also
alternate sides like that. The faster I
go, the more momentum I’m going to have
to reverse at the end ranges. That’s one
way to make it a little more challenging.
You can also use heavier Indian clubs.
This is just a one pound Indian club in
each hand. Try 20 reps on each side. You
can also do them both at the same time
or if you want to go for endurance set a
timer for a minute and just go after it
for one minute. Give that a try and if
you got any benefit from this exercise
