The following video details the number or processes involved in making the ShouldeRök™. Pictures don’t do the product full justice, as any ShouldeRök™ customer will tell you. Once in your hands you will see the true craftsmanship and how it’s built to last a lifetime.In this video you will see the ShouldeRök™ nut being cut out of raw plate on a CNC laser cutting machine. It is later put through the lathe to have the thread cut on the inside diameter and then tumbled to smooth the finish.The next step shown in the video is the turning of the main head which is cut out of solid 3” round stock before it becomes the finished component you see. In my personal shop you will see the perfect Diamond knurl being added to the handle. Then the forming of the flare on the end of the handle, which is the final touch before the assembly is welded together in the rotary welder.Unfortunately the plating shop didn’t allow me to get any shots of the ShouldeRök™ going into the dip tanks.In addition to the How-Its-Made video here are a couple recent ShouldeRök™ reviews. The first one is what inspired me to use some Conan music as the background to this video. It only seemed fitting.LONG TERM SHOULDEROK REVIEW ON BODYBUILDING.COM FORUMThis is a great user-submitted review on the Bodybuilding.com forum on the Shoulderok and it's use.IMPROVE SHOULDER MOBILITY AND LOOK LIKE CONAN THE BARBARIANCraig Marker, Ph.D., CSCS, SFGII, is a fitness enthusiast who has spent his life trying to help people improve their lives.

The Macebell or Gada is a classical training tool dating back centuries.  Its original use was in the wrestling for fighting cultures of ancient Persia and India.  My first experience using one was about 8 years ago when I attempted to incorporate it for shoulder development and conditioning. As a competitive powerlifter I quickly abandoned its use finding that combined with my powerlifting training it aggravated my wrist, elbows, and shoulders.However 2 years ago I decided to make another run at using the macebell again.  I had been making tremendous gains in shoulder health and mobility with my progression into Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) and some associated kettlebell work.  I decided to try the swing again but focus on some refinement in the movement based on the DNS methodologies.  The goal was to simply realize some training efficiency as the swing was a very active warmup.  If I could accomplish my rehab, prehab, and warmup all at the same time I would have more time to focus on my actual training.With the new approach to the swing my shoulder pain that I had been experiencing daily for the last 8 years disappeared after the first 30 days.  This is pain that had kept me from sleeping, interfered with my training, and I was only able to manage in the short term with mobilizing and re-seating drills.  Gone!  I couldn’t believe the change.  Being surrounded by powerlifters and strongman I found several other test subjects similar to myself and quickly found that the same thing happened. That was when I decided to develop the tool into what we now are marketing to others as the ShouldeRök™.  For further details on the value of the ShouldeRök™ and its impact on eliminating issues caused by open chain barbell movements today done with an...
