what routine to do if you wanna swing around stuff really hard and get stronk?
>>60827087Swing stuff around until failure
>>60827087Swinging around stuff is easy
>>60827087Armed combat is surprising not about raw strength.You can condition yourself by swinging heavy shit (sledgehammer, are, etc).But ultimately you need to learn proper technique and form.Footwork is also a MAJOR part.Behind back tricep extension and shoulder mobility work is good.You also need to work on forearm gain. Even "swinging" around a 5-10lb DB will give you substantial gainz if you use full ROM.Finesse training. Just set up target to strike and/or poke. And repetitively trying to land the mark.
>>60827087holy fucking forearms
>>60827087Get a gada and learn how to swing it
>>60827087fuck does someone have the link to his parkour video that shit was actually entertaining
>>60827087This is now a guts chad thread
I JUST WANT TO SWING SOME STEEL
>>60827623What's your physical location?
>>60827087Practice with it every day or every other day.The best way to get good at using a weapon...is to use it.Having said that, please apply common sense. At least look up actual technical information on how to use a greatsword or a zweihander. Claymore manuscripts won't be as useful since what you have doesn't have a ring guard for gripping.Talhoffer and Meier probbly have tracts on using two handed swords so check those out.Learn at least the basic guards (high guard, middle guard, low guard/fool's guard, and maybe the back guard...i forget the term in English but it's waki no kamae in moonspeak) and practice moving between them.When you're comfortable switching between guards then start practicing striking from each guard. Aim for sets of 10 strikes and consider the angle of your cut. Is it straight down the middle, or a diagonal cut from the top of the shoulder to the hip?Anyway there's a lot more to swinging a sword and sword-like things. But that's a start.>TL; Dr:> Learn actual great sword techniques> Learn basic guards> Practice switching between guards.> Practice striking from each guard 3-4 x 10 or something.
>>60829769I kind of want to buy a sword and get into that sort of thing, but all the HEMA types around me are so fucking autistic, and that's not even including the SCA retards.
>>60827623Welcome back Boomer. We've been waiting.
>>60827623Solid advice, where are you located? Are you down to meet up and teach footwork?
>>60827087Kettlebell lifts obviously
>>60827623What's the best way to combat CIA glowies
>>60829933Shit, forgot to turn my government-issued dubs generator off
>>60827623Here I thought you left. But seeing's how you're here now, mind teaching me a bit more hands-on technique? Preferably in person?
>>60829872Understandable. Swordfags are actually insufferable.The manuals are available online though and Jon Clements has good video stuff you can check out.
>>60827623Athlean-x tells me if you practice punching with weighted gloves that it actually makes you stronger. why would swinging a sledge hammer make me stronger at swinging a baseball bat?
>>60830073Might just have to do it alone in my backyard. Where's a good place to get a sword? Or should I start by making a wood one? Quaterstaff seems fun too might give that a go.
>>60830085Disregard weighted gloves, if you want to punch harder use resistance bands so you actually have resistance opposite to the direction of force rather than orthogonal.
>>60829762If you need to ask you don't need to know>>60829933>checkedI'd love to setup a center that teaches techniques and forms from across all cultures and civis. Certainly better IMO than Olympic fencing.Sharing cultures and history adds to the tapestry of humanity that we all share.We all in this together my fren.>>60830085It has more to do with what I can only call muscle dynamics or fluidity.There's a "passoff" from muscle group to muscle group that occurs throughout swinging and wide movements. Heavier weight helps to pinpoint where deficiencies are and/or gives smoother transition.
>>60829483>>60829498>>60827087I want to do this too, but I drive a fucking sedan so I can't really fit something this big in my car, and I'm too lazy to rig a heavy extendable metal pole. There are weighted foam poles at Walmart I've seen and they're about 7-15lbs and not too long.The next issue is doing this shit in public, I live in Las Vegas so even the park and wooded areas are heavily forested also I have normies will fucking stare at me like I crazy.
>>60827520This, it’s pretty well explained in the mango Berserku, also cardio
>>60827623Can you explain forearm gains for me
>>60827087I remember there’s an Indian thing that was basically a heavy staff that you would swing aroundI saw some guys got huge from just doing that
>>60827623stfu cunt u rly thik ur stong enuf to swang sledhamer? ur fukkin rarted cunt
>>60830138I don't know actually. Maybe just look up HEMA suppliers in your country and check out reviews?Skallagrim on YouTube does reviews and he's pretty spot on (when he's not being a cringey faggot).If you're starting out, a blunted sword might be a good investment or a federschwert for practice.Cold Steel actually makes decent practice swords from what I understand, but they tend to be in the heavier side. They're supposed to be very durable though and well worth the cost.
>>60827623Hey Based Boomer I just want to let you know that me and my CIA buddies have been keeping a close eye on you. Now this may be a little bit of an unorthodox approach but we've decided that an unorthodox approach is what needs to be done to 'handle' you. I'm just letting you know this because, well I guess I've gotten a little attached to you over the years and wanted to give you a little warning first. I've been watching you post here for years, always in the /cbt/ threads and for years never making any gains. It's a bit sad actually. Maybe if you actually lifted some weights instead of coomposting in the architect threads you'd actually get somewhere. Yes we saw you posting there too. You call it a "test boost" but having multiple folders with hundreds of pictures saved of fat women isn't really a "test boost" anymore is it? It's more of an obsession. You really think you're strong enough to swing around a sledgehammer? I doubt it. Once yes, but multiple times as a work out? Please. You're a dyel that bench presses kitty litter at your crappy "home gym" (if you can even call it that) in your office. Should I tell you how we're going to get you? Should I tell you our unorthodox method? Alright but just a little. I wont tell you the date or time. That way it'll keep you up at night wonder when we're going to come for you. Or should I say *cum* for you. That's right.You see when I first got put on this assignment of monitoring you I've developed a 'habit'. I've been watching your coomposting and every time it turned my on I've been cooming in a jar. I didn't know why I did this but I knew that it would be a good idea to use for a later assignment perhaps. But the time has finally cum. Me and my fellow CIA agents assigned to Project BB have been cooming into jars. One day when you least expect it, and maybe have forgotten about this thread, we will coom on every thing that you own. We're going to take the coomjars and a paintbrush and put it on everything.
>>60830853>hundredsThis is where I call LARP>ThousandsFTFY
>>60827623>>60830853We're going to coom on your car handle, your doorknob, your coffeepot, your fridge, your tv remote, everything. You know what? We're even going to coom on your wife. That's not part of the operation but that just something I'm going to do anyways. Everything you know and love will be coomed on BB. Everything. The best part is our headquarters is close by to your home in Texas so we'll be able to do this soon. You won't know when, but we're cooming for you.
