Tipped-forward mace squat:
6 x 3L, 3R @ lighter (L = bottom hand left. R = bottom hand right)
In this variation, the mace is held vertically- weight at the top- and then tipped slightly-but-challengingly forward. If done properly, full and total “Tip-to-tail” bracing and tension will be necessary in each rep; If they are not, tip the mace forward until they are.
6 x 9 @ heavier (adjust top-to-bottom hand in each set)
Mace held vertically, and features same set-up, bracing, tension, and range of motion as a bar or kettlebell.
