The Gada, or Indian Mace, is an ancient training tool that was used to condition the torso for the rigors of unarmed and armed combat. A combination of strength and conditioning and martial awareness it is the perfect compliment to Russian Kettlebell training. It also a great tool to mobilize the shoulders, arms and thoracic spine when used properly. On top of all the great benefits it is also a lot of fun to work with! Check out this video on how to control and align the Gada for maximum benefit.
BTW - thanks again to my good friend Richard "Army" Maguire (from AgelessStrength.com) for giving me the Gada that I currently train with.
