I tried a new move yesterday and I quite like it. The basic idea is of a worker turning the crank of a spit roasted pig, or to crank a bucket up or down a well, etc.

The move is a little hard to explain. First, I should say I do this with a hammer with no "glove" on the head. I grasped the hammer by the head, one hand on either side of the handle. I had the handle stick straight up as I figured it wouldn't hit anything this way (high ceilings where I work out). I placed my legs in a "bow" stance (one foot forward, one back and angled slightly out) and I moved the hammer like I was turning a crank handle (a vertical circle). I did 7 with my hands rotating in one direction (I am pushing away at the top of the circle and pulling towards me at the bottom) and then 7 in the opposite. I noticed I really felt the burn in my shoulders and triceps. In order not to put undo pressure on my back, when I did them the second time, I reversed my stance.


I don't know if you can make sense out of that description, but it felt great!

Oh I like this, this is good. I just did 7 to see what it felt like. I like!

No worries about the double post -- I'll remove the other one.

Sounds like a good move -- good name, too. And nice clear, description.

I'll give it a shot if I find I have sufficient vertical clearance.
