        yes, heavy club training is a thing in India and Iran. They're called Joris (for the clubs) and Gadas (for the maces) in India. Meels (for the clubs) and Gorz (for the maces) in iran.
        In the west they are just called heavy clubs, steel clubs, clubbells or steel maces/macebells.

        Yeah nobody in India is using steel. Mostly concrete gada or very large wooden jori. The steel versions are used very differently.

          a very good club and kb yt channel is a guy named Mark Wildman, and what he does clearly shows the difference. a clubbell shield cast is done with the thumb of the casting hand passing the opposite ear - this is possible due to the shorter length of the clubs. You HAVE to do a near side cast (hand passes same side ear) with a jori or meel if you're dual wielding.
          there are some differences between meel and jori casts too due to their length. an ausfag named Paul Wolkowinski is probably the expert on traditional wooden club shit and can autistically explain it in far greater detail than I can

            my right shoulder clicks whenever i do a shield cast. doesn't hurt but feels weird and it always happens when i go over the head rather than over the shoulder. any tips?

            • 2 weeks ago
              Anonymous

              I have the same problem and this is what worked for me. The problem was that I have a mild impingement/bone spur and it was being triggered by too much inward rotation. So instead of doing the pullover part of the shield cast where my nipples faced forward and my clicking-arm's elbow was pointing somewhat toward my opposite nipple, i'd do more full rotation and my elbow would be -- relative to my torso, facing forward. Be sure to lead such rotation from the hips, it is the same move as flipping someone over your shoulder, a kettlebell halo, or a hula hoop motion.

                yeah, it's not perfect but it helps. the other thing is to not death grip the handle. I don't know enough about muscle irradiation to explain why, but death gripping tightens your forearm muscles which engage your biceps and that I think engages the long head which is probably what's clicking. if you basically loosen everything it helps. good luck my man

                The lever length is different, causing different form and results. Getting a Mace (10lb - 20lb) a the better choice, and you could learn mace flow. Be advised, better to learn club before mace, not the other way around.

                If you have a hammer already then that can be a good starting point, despite what many will tell you. If you’re going to be forking out cash either way, it’s definitely worth paying a little extra for the mace.

        Bit of both. some of it is technique since it's firing a rotational kinetic chain versus posterior or anterior chain. it definitely hits the serratus, mid traps and rotator cuff muscles (supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, uh... Paul and Ringo) but you can also train those with things like ytwl drills and face pulls and dumbbell pullovers

      with enough TUT you can get moderate gains, look at the pro Kettlebell sport people. But they're doing sets of ten straight minutes of clean and jerk. the Persian and Indian guys do similar loooong sets with clubs. so it is possible but barbells are much better if your time is limited. if hypertrophy isn't your goal, then you get better overall GPP with the ballistic stuff

      Dan John says if you're strong at the top of a movement, and strong at the bottom, the middle takes care of itself. So do getups and waiters walks (push press the weight up) with the 32 to get used to it overhead, and walk around with the weight in the rack to build strength there.
      That said, at 50 reps of 24kg you should have at least 1 32kg press in you. And when you get one, there's a program on SF called soju & tuba that can take you to 3-4 reps pretty quickly
