Can anyone give me a link to an article or any books written on sledge hammer training?
Try over at www.gripboard.com. They should have some stuff on levering.
I looked and found some stuff on levering and forearm work. I'm looking for some striking stuff I can use for core work as a GPP workout. I'm just an out of shape powerlifter LOL
Just get a sledge and a tire.
Swing like your chopping wood, 15 reps on the left, 15 on the right, 15 straight over head, rinse + repeat.
there's lots of stuff on the web, try the following:search archives and articles at Dragondoor.comfunctionalhandstrength.comironmind.commike mahler's web site he does kettlebell stuff but also has stuff on hammers too.
that should provide lots of source material and links to other hammer stuff
Striking = striking,I think you know what to do.use 'em like clubells, indian clubs.The company that made the new sandbags that were covered in the articles a few weeks ag, the ultimate sandbag, just put out a DVD on striking too.
