Many of have experienced the core hammers to this point in our outdoor season. We’ve stood and slammed utilizing our whole body. When standing, the power comes from the amount of power your lower body puts into the ground. The power is transferred from the ground, to the lower body through your midsection. From here your mid section is creating a slingshot to help the arms deliver the hammer into the ground.
Now, think about this, what if we are sitting down? How will the power come from the ground, through the torso and deliver to the arms? Now your core muscles are more responsible for creating the power. Making this option a great exercise to strengthen and shape your core.
We’ve only just begun using the hammers. Take a look at this video from Yancy Culp on some other exercise options we’ve used, and will use in the very near future 🙂
