I am trying to find a training program geared towards SCA (stick) fighting. Has anyone developed such a program?
I was able to find a thread from ~2004 where the posters unfortunately kept their Clubbell® routines secret (which is oddly counter to SCA philosophy).
As a bit of background, I read about Clubbell® training online and the training appeared synergistic with SCA fighting (e.g., off center weight, grip strength, etc.). I bought a pair with some skepticism - some of the strength gain claims seem facially over the top.
I pulled various exercises and routines from DVD's, youtube, etc. Over a 3-4 month span I ended up buying almost a complete set. I was fairly astounded. Not by the strength gains but the speed at which the gains came. I unfortunately ended up injuring myself with what I think is golfer's elbow in both elbows. Basically, on the front swing of a mill I would get this electrical shock type feeling. I am fairly certain I went to heavy to fast and my tendons/ligaments couldn't keep up with the strength gains.
In any case, the various routines did generically translate towards SCA fighting with some fairly impressive results, but I would like to optimize my training. If someone is willing to share any programs that have been successful for stick fighting I would love to see them.
