Unleash some punishment on the next training tyre that comes your way. Swinging and slamming an Xtreme Elite Sledge Hammer down not only offers a great workout, you’ll also get some serious stress relief! The sledge hammer is a simple, effective, functional strength and conditioning tool that will help you to develop explosive power. Work your way through the weight range for a constant challenge.
- Full body workout
- Develop arms, shoulders and upper back
- Rotational core strength training
- Improve grip strength
- Rehab/prehab work
- Develop functional fitness including balance, agility, coordination and flexibility
Sledge hammers can be integrated into a variety of workouts including circuits and high intensity interval training. Aim for time or number of strikes and mix it up with a variety of diagonal and vertical strikes from both the left and right sides of your body. You’ll build strength, burn fat and get a great cardio workout at the same time.
If you’re new to sledge hammer training, start off with a light weight and gradually work your way up. This will allow you to concentrate on developing correct technique and form while avoiding potential injury. Ensure you have plenty of space around you and enough clearance above your head. Avoid striking sledge hammers on hard surfaces that don’t have any ‘give’ – old tractor tyres are ideal.
