Sledgehammer Training

One of my favorite strength development tools is the sledgehammer.

The best way to use it is with two easy steps:

1) Get a heavy sledgehammer.
2) Hit something with it repeatedly.

Ross Enamait has an excellent and nearly exhaustive pair of articles on sledgehammer training.

Part I

Part II

A couple variations:

Rotational Chops - sideways swings.

Breaking Up Trash - Don't have a tire? You can smash up something that needs smashing.

Now all you need is a hammer...
