Swinging a pair of heavy clubs is, however, not the easiest categorie of swinging arts we provide at Dutch Flow Academy. If you’re in doubt if this will be too difficult for you, we would advise you to start with Heavy Club 101 (strength) or Light Clubs 101 (coordination). Heavy Clubs 101 starts all the way at the beginning of the heavy clubs journey. However, you will not just learn a few movement patterns. You will also learn how to combine movements through transitions on a basic level. Usually people gravitate too quickly towards complex movement patterns. This course will force you to focus on the absolute basics to master them through a lot of drills. You will not be where you were when you started the course, that’s for sure. This course is vital before attempting more difficult courses or exercises as it will build a solid foundation of strength, coordination, endurance and understanding for swinging a pair of heavy clubs. 

Length. Every video as a certain amount of reps that are needed to be performed before moving onwards. You can see every video as a single workout in and of itself. Some will complete it within 1-2 weeks if they’re eager and learn quickly. Others might take 2-3 weeks depending on the willingness to push through and their basic level of coordination.

Requirements. All you need is a pair of heavy clubs and the internet the access and learn from this course. We recommend a weight between 2-4kg per club. This might sound light, but we will warn you that it’s going to be challenging already with a relatively lighter pair. It takes time to learn how to stabilise the clubs and you should not underestimate that. You can for a wooden or metal pair, both will work for the course.

Best program for clubs flow

Clubs are my second favorite tool for workout after the Gada, I knew some basic moves but this curse is amazing, as always Herbert drives you and teaches you from the basic then you will be able to swing the clubs nicely and properly. One of the best parts is the dutch flow academy method and the tempo incorporation that made the work out more fun and challenging.
