In the first weekend of February 2024, I'm excited to share that I'll be leading a club strength workshop at the Five Lakes CrossFit Center in Farmington Hills , MI. I
t's open to anyone who enjoys swinging the club-bell , regardless of where you learned or what system you use.
There's a whole world of different ways to use this tool. Some are good, some not so much; it all depends on how well you understand it. Over the last 20 years or more, I've been developing various training methods and techniques, many of which are used by club swingers today. I've introduced numerous athletes to the bell and its benefits.
Despite being an ancient tool, there's still so much about it that feels new. The more you work with it, the more you realize there are gaps in our knowledge that need filling. My ongoing research aims to fully understand the benefits and drawbacks of this tool. Sometimes people can be a bit careless with the club or introduce it too soon to competitive athletes - this can do more harm than good.
During the workshop, we'll start with the basics and gradually move onto more advanced technical aspects. We'll learn not just how to perform simple and complex movements, but also how to properly schedule these exercises over 4-weeks, 8-weeks, or even 12-week cycles. Understanding when to incorporate this tool with other tools is key to maximizing its benefits.
We'll also discuss how to execute different types of movements correctly - whether they're hybrid movements, ballistic movements, or grind movements - each one requires a unique approach and positioning of the bell around your body.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together everyone from any comunity or systems. From Club-bell enthusiasts to Macebell users - and enhance our understanding of this amazing tool together. We'll also cover how to choose the right type of club bell since some designs out there can potentially harm an athlete's physique.
I look forward to spending these two incredible days with you. We have a lot to learn together and I can't wait to see you there.
