Sledgehammer

Overview

Often, the best strength-and-conditioning workouts are reminiscent of some kind of destructive activity.

The sledgehammer as an implement comes with a strong sense of theatre. It reminds us of tough people who earned their strength in tough professions; breaking rocks on the chain gang and demolition. It also makes you think of breaking that task – or that opponent – into pieces, one blow at a time.

Chopping wood has traditionally been a popular conditioning exercise for boxers. The sledgehammer and tyre is far more practical – and less messy – in a modern setting. It’s also safer and a lot more forgiving if you are tired and miss the target.

Driving a sledgehammer into a tyre is also beneficial because of the rebound after striking. Having to control the implement will develop balance and awareness at point-of-contact.

While it employs the muscles usually associated with triple extension of the posterior chain, the sledgehammer works them in reverse, which is more relevant to striking or taking-down an opponent in a wrestling context. Sledgehammer training will also develop core and rotational strength, cardiovascular fitness as well as providing rigorous conditioning for the wrists, arms, and shoulders. The sledgehammer can also be swung in different ways to unite different movement patterns.

Sledgehammers from Iron Edge are available at three weights: 5, 10 and 15 kilos. Iron Edge hammers are engineered for exercise, rather than labor; the hammer is a steel head,welded to a steel shaft for unbreakable reliability. The shaft is finished with a light knurling to provide a grip.

FAQ

Q: what is the measurement of the hammer?

A: The handle is 92cm long, the head is 8cm long.

Q: I'm new to sledgehammer training. Is the sledgehammer only designed to be used on tyres? What if I dont have access to one?

A: The best practice is to use them on tyres as they're incredibly durable and absorb most of the shock. If you don't have access to a tyre you could substitute some thick rubber matting or similar.

Q: can they be used for smashing up concrete and belting star pickets into the ground?

A: It's not recommended.

10kg Sledgehammer

I purchased this some time ago. 10kg was the right choice for average male with strength training experience. Is demanding without being too heavy. Very strong construction. Used on various types of tyres.

Strong & Functional!

Having used sledgehammers from bunnings I needed more weight. The 10kg is my favourite piece of workout equiptment. Looking fwd to upgrading to the 15kg soon.

Plus I use it on my farm. :D
So for a tradie this will be a tax deductible tool.
