I did a conditioning camp over spring break for 4 days. This work out was a part of it...talk about tough. Your grip and shoulder strength blow up, but you will be sore as a mofo after your first couple times. I can't wait to get back into this workout this summer. Its great for fighting our just for looking good and getting stronger.

i do this too, and i have seen them doing it. its actually pretty simple. one hand half way up the pole (right hand) one hand at the bottum, then stager your stance just a bit and swing down coming from over the top. its really effective, gives you a brick for hands and works your core.

well when you hit the tyre from the right side your right hand should be the upper one and when hitting from the left side the left hand is the upper one...hitting from the right side with left hand being the upper one just doesn't feel right..try and you'll see ... as for leg position just stay in the regular position with both feet lined up...a bit wider than usually though...just look at this video..

and yes, he does go in a southpaw for a while when he hits from the left side...i personally switch between orthodox and southpaw aswell when i do few reps on 1 side than switch and do few from the other side but if i mix it up like left-right-left-right etc i stay in regular stance with legs lined up as shown in the first few seconds of the video.


hope that helped...peace!

I agree, I would do this with a complete reversal of stance for an equal number of left-handed swings. Of course, you're going to suck with your left at first. I did this chopping wood but I knew my accuracy and form were crappy from the left so I took it easy (less power) until I felt comfortable. I'd feel pretty retarded if I hit myself in the leg with an axe.
