    I hope you don't mind my curiosity. I'm interested in Rip's perspective on mace swinging. Does he consider it a gimmick, or does he see a role for mace swinging in conditioning, strength, or explosiveness training?

    This is a strength training board. Maces are weapons. We practice with weapons, and we train for strength.

    Would you say that mace-wielding warriors should train based on the two factor model of sports performance?
