Key Techniques For Indian Club Arm Circles
- Use very light Indian clubs. 1 or 2 pounds is plenty. If in doubt, go lighter.
- Focus on extending the range of motion back behind the plane of your body to activate the upper back muscles and stretch the pecs.

Video Transcript: Hey it's Nick Ortego here. I'm going to show you a modification of a commonly performed dynamic mobility warm-up drill called arm circles with these Indian clubs. So you start out with pretty light ones. These are one pound each; we're doing arm circles. You can do these arm circles forward or backward. Start out slow and then you can build speed just bringing them to the midline and down and then backwards. 15 to 20 repetitions each direction backwards and forwards is a good start. Give that a try, your next upper body warm-up, the next upper body oriented workout. Let me know if it works for you Let me know how you like it. You got any benefit from this video? Leave a comment.
