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.
