Steel Mace Warmup
Slow, controlled movement
Alternate with a Partner

1x through on each side, then switch with your partner (go back and forth until you have each done 3 sets)
Ballistic Curl after each Step

Right leg* Reverse Lunge
Right Leg Forward Lunge
Right leg Side Lunge
Right leg Crossback Lunge
Repeat same sequence on Left leg*

*only the Right leg will move during the first half, the left leg remains where it is for the entire Right side sequence, then on the other side only the Left leg will move

1 set:
Mace Front Pendulum Practice (about 20 reps then switch)
-with knees soft and midsection braced, hold the mace upside down, keeping hands high up in front of the sternum
-as you swing the mace from side to side, increase the amplitude of the swing until the mace is parallel to the floor at the top of the movement
-same side elbow lifts up, opposite side stays tucked
-perform 5/5 kettlebell halos after

2 sets:
***everyone should use a 10# mace for this***

Mace Rear Pendulum Practice (about 20 reps)
-perform a 30 second behind the neck kettlebell hold before each set, letting the weight open up your thoracic spine and help your shoulders find the proper position for the mace pendulum
-hold mace behind your head, keeping the elbows pointed up and hands close to your neck, try to swing the mace so the globe floats parallel to the floor
-keep same posture as above, knees soft, midsection engaged, ribcage pulled down

Free practice:
Mace 360 degree Swing
– if and ONLY IF you have decent control of the mace behind you and can maintain proper position
– when the globe of the mace floats weightless and the shaft is parallel to the floor, simply pull your hands and elbows down in front of you, and brace your body to absorb any momentum
– elbows should come to make contact with the ribs, hands should be just in front of your belly button
– keep your eyes on the globe as it comes over, so you can avoid it crashing into your face or body if you don’t lock everything down quickly enough
– take the mace back into the pendulum and try again
– we are working toward complete awareness of the mace as it swings around the body, and total control of the momentum as  you move it from behind to in front of you
