Video Transcript: Hey Nick Ortego here. Been experimenting with these Indian clubs. This is just a little one-pound pair. I'm going to show you an exercise that I just found that really helps your contralateral rotational movements that you need with running. And basically we're going to March while rotating with these clubs. So just kind of swinging the club side to side like this. A little bit of torso rotation that goes on. And then we're going to throw a march into it so that when I swing this way that leg is gonna lift. When I swing the other way that leg is going to lift. So it looks like this you can pause at the top or you can make it more dynamic. Great as a warm up. Use heavier bells, it becomes more of a workout. So these Indian clubs come in one pound, two pounds, even five pounds or heavier sometimes. But start with the light ones. Give that a try. Use it as a warm-up. Work your way up to heavier using it as a workout. It can make a great interval. You do that high intensity with heavier clubs for a minute or so, a great high intensity interval. Throw into your interval training. You got any benefit from this video, leave a comment below.
