Swinging two clubs is very different compared to a machine lift in the gym and will challenge your entire body to function properly. Light Club swinging will strengthen and mobilise your entire arm and shoulder.
Difficulty. It’s a 101 course, which means it’s basically an introduction/beginner course. It starts all the way at the beginning of the light 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.

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 access to the internet and two light clubs. We would advise two clubs of a weight between 0.5kg and 1kg. It can be made of wood, plastic/water or steel. They are usually sold as Indian Clubs, Pahlavandles, or steel clubs. It sounds like a small amount of weight, but don’t underestimate this practice. It can be brutal on the shoulders!
