Tips on how to properly perform the Steel Mace Extended Squat

Exercise Tips: Steel Mace Extended Squat

The Steel Mace Extended Squat is an excellent, full body exercise that engages your lower body, core, and upper body all at once. While the basic squat exercise is great for your core and quads, extending a Steel Mace in front of your body changes the entire dynamic of the drill. This simple squat variation requires grip strength, shoulder strength, and additional core engagement to hold the Steel Mace in position for each rep. Perform in sets of 10-25 reps, or for a harder challenge, perform reps for 2 minutes while stopping for 5 seconds at the bottom of each rep.
