Indian Club bells

Clubbells are becoming popular as one of the more effective exercising tools. Clubbells are primarily used for building the upper body. They have been used in the East for many years for the development of the upper body, including the hands and arms.

The colonial rule of the British Empire in India brought the idea of Clubbells to the rest of the world and hence it acquired the name Indian Clubbells. They were made of wood in the beginning, but now, they are available in polyurethane rubber and can have loop handles made of string or knobs. They are available in different weights and the user has the opportunity to select the right Indian Clubbells according to his/her needs. Clubbells have become a common exercise tool for athletes, including basketball players, tennis players, soccer players, baseball players, body builders, martial artists. They can even be used as part of your routine exercise regimen. However, Indian Clubbells are most useful for the rehabilitation of shoulder injuries.

Indian Clubbells are designed to improve the forearm, hand, shoulders and wrists. The basic movement of the Indian Clubbells is the swinging motion, which will enforce the entire motion of the shoulder joint. The arm movement around the body is the most common exercise practice of the Indian Clubbells and it ensures the working out of the body in different planes. In addition, Indian Clubbells will help the muscles, ligaments and tendons, of the four joints in the shoulder. Routine exercisers comment that incorporation of any other lower body exercise such as a squat with the Indian Clubbells will help to create the perfect exercise involving< both upper and lower body.



Three forearm swings is the recommended Indian Clubbells practice to improve the upper body strength. It involves the arms as well as the body, which can be used as a start up exercise. In the forearm swings, shoulders must be down and the arms must be straight. While the Indian Clubbells moves forward and backward, the forearm will rotate inward and turn outward. After the repetition of the three forearm swings, it is advised to contract the glutes, and quads, which will help to transfer the power of the body to the arms to move the Clubbells upward. In this process, the gripping muscles will have the workout and care must be taken that the movement must always be smooth.
