  • Anyone a Sledgehammer user?

    I really love slamming a sledgehammer around (what happened to that shovel glove dude?) for a workout.

    I may just do sledgehammer work, or do a quick intense round with the barbell/dumbbells then polish off with some hammer work. I've found that it works the little tiny muscles very well, I've gotten that 'cool tone' that i've been wanting for years (although granted i've been very strict with diet so that's probably helping).

    It's fun to whack a big tyre, or pretend to have other 'scenarios' while working out, as crazy as that sound it really helps out.

    I would like it. I need to find someone who needs wood chopped. Chopping wood is fun as hell and a good work out.

        Gee, I seem to split a lot of wood but I find moving big rounds, especially lifting them onto the splitting table (maybe 90cm off the deck), pushing them under the hydrolic splitter and then throwing the drying pile a better workout than when swinging a splitting maul. Some of those big wet rounds don't weigh much less than I do!

          Heck YES!!

          I do it for a fat burning workout + I consider it a good ab workout as well - My obliques (love handles) get an amazing workout.

          Here's a good beginner workout I'd like to share if I haven't already...



          let me warn you though... start off light with a 8-10 pounder and then work your way up to the 20 pounder
          I actually help people look good naked. Seriously, I do this for a living and have fun doing it! Don't believe me? See the people I've helped for free

              I'm a big shovelglove/sledgehammer user. I have a 16lb one. Workouts are very intense and lots of fun.

                  This is my reasoning as well.

                    Sledges rock! Not doing this now, but I used to, and I will again someday.

                      I think I need to upgrade to a heavier one, my British Rail one isn't cutting it much anymore

                      edit: in typical male fashion, I literally went out and bought a 10 lber!



                      Now i'm looking foward to working out.

                          Oh god, if you workout with a tyre be careful!

                          Normally I drag my tired out with my hammer (the hammer is like a latch so to speak), I did that, but it landed on my toe (no shoes for me, sock though), and pushed my big toe nail and half of my cuticle area up 90 degrees, argh now that was pain personified. Beware folks.......

                            One of the few instances where non primal footwear (steel toed work boots) might be a good idea.
