This simple exercise can go a long way. Just by lifting and extending the maces as you walk, you will feel and see some great gains to number of muscle groups. Give it a try!
Back in the day Gary and I used to sit in the ’80s, the early ’80s, staring at MTV when they actually used to play music videos. One of our favorites was the Genesis music video “I can’t dance.” [laughs] With Phil Collins and the other two guys, who no one really gave a shit about any way, dancing. It looked like this.
They were really [laughs] getting funky with it. What better way than to use the maces to really get a full body work out. I mean full. I mean if you go a football field doing the Phil Collins dance, your shoulders, your back, your abs, your chest, your glutes, your everything. It’s amazing.
You start up, open up your arms a little bit. You want to go right about there. Choke up a little bit. Whatever leg you step forward with, that’s the opposite. This is going to be tough for a lot of you. I know it was for Gary because he crashed three times.
This, this. Pretty simple. All right? Here we go. If you know the song, this is where you’d want to be singing. You can almost see those guys on their video. “I can’t dance, no, I can’t dance.” It’s not easy week after week coming up with this crap you guys. All right, before you get too carried away with it, make sure that when you’re stepping forward you’re not doing the same leg because this makes it incredibly awkward. You’ll tip over. No, I’m not tipping over for you. I have a nice white short on. If you do that it’s just going to suck.
You got to do opposites. First you can start swinging like this. In fact, I think that’s how they did it in the video. I’ll try and time it a little better. Geez, what am I, in a polka band. By the way, what’s up with all this old timey music? Trampled by Turtles, the Avett Brothers, I hate that crap. What about Iggy Pop? Come on man. Bring the Stooges back. Clash. Sure all my favorites are dead, but what are you going to do. Step, step. Are you singing? Are you singing along at home?
All right, that ought to bug the hell out of you for about a week. [laughs] Mr. Cameraman, Mr. Me, we’re finally outside taking a look at the panoramic view that is the Hanzo Ranch. Siding, and brown, I will see you next week.
