When training with a hammer, don't just use any hammer: use a model specially designed for weight training. This type of training is all about engaging a variety of muscles at the same time with the swings of the hammer. This has the advantage that several individual exercises can be combined with hammer training. Therefore, such training is extremely efficient.
In this form of training, the hammer is firmly gripped with both hands and guided over the shoulder from back to front over the body. This primarily puts strain on the upper arm and forearm muscles. Since the entire torso is used in this workout, the back muscles, shoulders and neck muscles can also be strengthened with a hammer workout. In order for the big swings to be executed effectively, it is important to have a stable position with both legs. To maintain this, the muscles in the thighs and buttocks are challenged and effectively strengthened. It doesn't matter whether it's a tricep-blasting workout, a lumberjack-style chopping wood workout or a hammer twist: when you train with the fitness hammer, you're sure to get a good sweat going.
A particularly big challenge is the uneven distribution of the weight, which has to be balanced with the hammer. The hammer is an ideal training tool to improve body coordination. The only question left is which target the hammer should not miss. A large tyre - e.g. from an agricultural tractor - lying on the ground is suitable.
We offer workout hammers in different sizes and weight classes so that even beginners can familiarise themselves with the exercises. It is important to grip the hammer with both hands staggered.
