Functional Training

Borne out of gymnastics, weightlifting, powerlifting and various endurance sports, functional training systems are growing fast in popularity. More and more gyms are being set up across the world, and many people follow the programmes and "Workout of the day", WODs, at home too.

Strengthshop offers a lot of the equipment useful in both WODs, and the additional training such as Olympic Weightlifting and powerlifting. We offer a wide range of kettlebells, and also kettlebell package deals ideal for home gyms.

We offer prowlers, gymnastic rings and various strongman equipments. For weightlifting we offer our affordable but high quality weightlifting barbell, and bumper plates, both all black and standard colour bumber plates.

The occasional niggle and pain should not prevent training sessions and for that we have wrist wraps (supple enough for functional training) and neoprene elbow sleeves and neoprene knee sleeves.

On this page you will find just examples of the type of useful stuff we stock for functional training. Please see the more detailed lists under different categories.

  19. Mace, 3 kg
    €29.99
    Strengthshop maces are the definition of a functional training implement. Origins Part of a revival of ancient, simple, and deadly effective training modalities, mace training originates in South Asia and the Middle East, where warriors and wrestlers swung maces as part of a functional training routine that gave them a competitive edge in both battle and sport. Today, most of us won´t be swinging a mace on the battlefield, but that doesn´t mean you can´t have the core strength and shoulder mobility of an ancient Persian warrior! How does it work? By placing the vast majority of the weight at the end of a long lever, mace training recruits your grip, core and stabilizers as you perform challenging and unothodox exercises under uneven loads. While the mace is most often used in dynamic, upper body swinging and rotational exercises, it is also a great way to spice up more traditional movements with a wealth of squat, lunge, press and curl variations. Why train with a mace? Training with a mace perfectly compliments more conventional strength and conditioning work, and is especially well suited to athletes who must generate force from varied and unpredictable angles. Whether throwing a ball or a punch, or using implements such as sticks or paddles, mace training increases athletic performance by effectively training mobility, force generation and motor control over awkard loads and levers. The mace is also a wonderful addition to powerlifting, strongman, or bodybuilding programming, as well as for the desk-bound, as it effectively strengthens, stabilizes, rehabilitates, and increases the range of motion in the shoulder joint. Specs: Material: Solid cast iron ball, steel handle Handle Length: approx. 95 cm Handle Diameter: 4 cm Handle Knurling: Soft Much like kettlebell training, it´s good to start with a lower weight than expected, and work your way up as your strength and functional range of motion increases. Note that you can effectively adjust the weight of the mace by moving your grip up or down the length of the handle, thereby adjusting the length of the lever. Learn More
