Clubbell Construction

I filmed this entire vid by myself on my little flip type cam. I still use these clubbells and I think they are a great training tool. My form is a little wonky in this vid. I’ve gotten a lot more fluid. The music is the title track from the “Stoneheart” album by Brick. They are probably mostly known for the song “Dazz” from the album Good High that charted back in 1976.

    Hi and thanks for the video.

    I’m setting out to Home Depot to grab the parts for my own clubbell. I have one question though, are the parts black iron pipe or steel? Because black iron tends to dent and break up pretty easily.

      Not sure what they are, bud. I think it’s just basic plumbers pipe. These aren’t meant to be banged together so denting shouldn’t be an issue. I just used them last week for a great workout. The only construction issues I can comment on are that I occasionally have to tighten the joints. You should feel free to use Loctight so there will be no loosening, but I chose not to. I like being able to break the entire unit down if I wanted and I can still fill them up with stuff heavier than playground sand.

    Couple questions on this:

    1. How much did this run you, and were you able to get the parts at a home depot or lowes, or did you have to hit up a plumbers supply store?

    Also, what’s the gym you train in? It looks amazing and I want to go there. Also, what martial arts do you train in/are a master of, I assume you run your own school/club?

      Hey Ron, no need for a plumbers supply store. All of this stuff can be found at Lowes or Home Depot. I paid between 10-20 bucks a piece for these if I remember correctly. The gym I train at ( is in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I achieved instructor level in several arts: Jeet Kune Do/Jun Fan Gung Fu, Filipino Kali/Silat, Muay Thai, Shooto/Japanese Shoot Wrestling, and Savate. Years ago I ran my own martial art school but now I just teach privately.

        Thanks for the response, I’m running Tough Mudder tomorrow and I plan on building a couple clubbells on Sunday, very excited! Is there a good resource for clubbell workouts you can recommend?

        I’m quite jealous of that gym, I have nothing like that near me! I personally just turned 30 but you are incredibly inspiring. I hope I can be anywhere near as in shape and dedicated as you are by the time I hit even 40.

        Also, the mustache is awesome.
