Macebell Workouts

Post by Drak »

Has anyone here used one of these before for exercise?

I wanted to step into something different for conditioning instead of just skipping rope on cardio days outside of weights. So I keep seeing fitness folks using these. My medieval side kicked in and I thought I'd give it a go, it looked like fun. I bought a 10 pound bell and it sure feels a lot heavier than 10 pounds with the leverage. 10 pounds is the suggested starting weight.

I'm starting slow and just learning the moves but I started venturing into the 360 after a couple days of handling.

This is what they look like (trainer model not included).

Yeah that probably wouldn’t work, although it’s supposed to be great for posture and shoulder health.

Scoliosis here and natural bad posture. I hate it, I can correct it but only when reminded.

I’ve had my share of posture issues, too. I’ve been working on it a lot and I’ve noticed significant improvement. Lots of various stretches and back exercises, but it’s paid off. Pain in the ass though. I used to have a lot of pain on my right side playing guitar, even sitting down. The pain is now gone. It was a scapular wing issue with that.
