Apollo Athletics Steel Cross-Training Sledge Hammers - Are you looking to start a sledge hammer strength training routine? Sledgehammer training is an effective whole body exercise, and is increasing in popularity with crossfit, strongman, and fitness cross-training. Each swing starts at your feet, travels up through your legs and hips, is transmitted via your core muscles up into your chest, back, and shoulders and finally delivered through your upper and lower arms. All of these muscles working together demand a large amount of oxygen which makes sledgehammer swinging very metabolically demanding. Short sets using maximum power will develop strength and anaerobic fitness. Longer sets using lighter strikes will develop aerobic fitness and muscular endurance. Because swinging a sledgehammer uses a large percentage of your muscle mass, it is also a very effective calorie burner and is easily comparable with other whole body low impact workouts like rowing and swimming as well as heavy bag punch training. So grab a weighted training hammer, find yourself a used tire, and start swinging. It’s HAMMER TIME!
