Description

Indian clubs', or 'Iranian clubs' belong to a category of exercise equipment used for developing strength, and in juggling. In appearance, they resemble elongated bowling-pins, and are commonly made out of wood. They come in all shapes and sizes however, ranging from a few pounds each, to fifty pounds, and are commonly swung in certain patterns as part of exercise programs. They were often used in class formats, predominantly in Iran, where members would perform choreographed routines, led by an instructor; remarkably similar to modern aerobics classes. This work is a reprint of a classic publication on the use of 'Indian Clubs' and along with a brand new introduction, includes a series of exercises to help you get in shape the old-fashioned way.

Indian Clubs
Indian clubs , or Iranian clubs belong to a category of exercise equipment used for developing strength, and in juggling. In appearance, they resemble elongated bowling-pins, and are commonly made out of wood. They come in all shapes and sizes however, ranging from a few pounds each, to fifty pounds, and are commonly swung in certain patterns as part of exercise programs. They were often used in class formats, predominantly in Iran, where members would perform choreographed routines, led by an instructor; remarkably similar to modern aerobics classes. Despite their name, Indian clubs actually originated in ancient Persia, Egypt and the Middle East, where they were used by wrestlers. The practice has continued to the present day, notably in the varzesh-e bastani tradition practiced in the zurkaneh of Iran. British colonialists first came across these eastern artefacts in India however, hence the name. The Indian clubs became exceedingly popular back in the UK, especially during the health craze of the Victorian era. In a book written in 1866, by an American sports enthusiast, S.D. Kehoe, it was stated that as a means of physical culture, the Indian Clubs stand pre-eminent among the varied apparatus of Gymnastics now in use. He had visited England in 1861, and was so impressed with the sport that he began to manufacture and sell clubs to the American public in 1862.
