Q/A: Why Shadow Box With Hammers?
Someone replied to this youtube clip on shadow boxing with hammers. His question is below.
There is no reason to use hammers please convince me other wise I shouldn’t just use dumbbells.
My reply is because the resistance profile is different. Just like there is a difference between using a kettlebell and dumbbell.
There is more weight on where the steel is versus the wooden handle so deceleration/accelerating is enhanced.
Give it a try and feel the difference. Just a different tool to use than a dumbell is all and a different training effect it elicits.
