Hopefully the imbed will work, otherwise the video is here.

I made this up to work my core more... and it REALLY does!

This is friggin awesome!

Much clearer than my videos. You actually bother to explain what you're doing!

I'm going to attempt this move with some confidence that I'll be doing what you have in mind (a first, I'm never quite sure when people post move descriptions here that I'm getting it).

Only thing is we need a better name... maybe something will come to me right before my abs give out.

If you don't mind, and this move feels as pleasantly painful as it looks, I'd love to post this video to the movements registry along with your video. I've got a long backlog of suggested movements to consider for inclusion there, but video moves you to the head of the line.

Good job!
But your video could be named the neck killer cos I had to look at it from a weird angle! LOL

No doubt that movement is good for engaging your core.
I could see it.
Have fun!

I'm glad you liked it! I didn't want to seem like I was overstepping, since I haven't been shugging that long, but I simply LOVE doing that move.

Vigorous shugging tends to engage the core alot, but that REALLY targets the abs.

And like other shovel glove moves, you can very the stress by how far away from your body you let the hammer head rotate. (if I recall physics 1 correctly, the force needed increases as the square of distance)

I certainly wouldn't mind at all if you added it. Sorry about it being side ways, I wanted to as much of my body in the view as I could, so i had my camera side ways and I don't have the software to change it! Hopefully you'll recover soon Deb!

It DOES need a better name... It's kind of similar to actually chopping a tree... I also imagine bashing in a door knob.. but so far nothing compelling has bubbled into my brain.

Hey, cool! I'll have to try this out tomorrow morning! Very Happy

It makes me think of chopping trees too. I've been doing a similar motion, but without that little step that you're doing.

Props for sharing a vid of your idea! I've had the same trouble as Reinhard when it comes to interpreting written descriptions.

That's cool!

I do a similar move also without the step that I always thought of as "pop the doorknob"--like a SWAT team busting through a door.

I'll definitely try this with the step.

I thought of busting a door open too! But not "pop the doorknob!" which is kinda catchy. I like it Smile


I tried doing it without the step, just swinging back and forth at the hips, but I found it put too much strain on the knees and I got some pain during the day after doing it.

With the step it's a little more dynamic, and there isn't a twisting motion along your legs... just a linear lunging motion as far as they are concerned.

This was great! I ended up taking a long break from exercise and just returned to shugging this morning. (First time since late July -- took it slowly.)

Anyway, I came here for some inspiration & read posts I'd missed. Saw this. Tried it. Liked it!
