The Monks of the Shaolin temple have been training with stone padlocks since the Han Dynasty, over 1500 years ago. These stone weights are called padlocks, or locks, as they resemble traditional Chinese padlocks.
Stone Padlocks can be used for a variety of upper body exercises and will provide forearm development like you won't believe.
The 25 Pound Stone Padlocks are great for a number of upper body movements and can take basic exercises like curls and presses and make them extra brutal. No other implement stresses the wrists and forearms as effectively during these movements.
The Shaolin Monks perform a variety of exercises with stone padlocks and showed Roger a number of them when he recently visited the overseas headquarters of the Shaolin Temple. The smaller sized Padlocks are used for dynamic movements in striking and form work. All sizes are great for explosive lifting, not unlike Olympic style weightlifting. They favor a snatch - type movement with the heavier padlocks. These weights are used for hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of movements per day by Monks in training.
Stone Padlock exercises produce phenomenal upper body conditioning, a grip of steel and a training edge that made the Shaolin Monks some of the fiercest fighters that the world has ever known.
Our padlocks are actually used in the Shaolin Overseas Headquarters!
Exercises with these implements spread to a number of regions and are thought to be the inspiration for many kettlebell training ideas that have surfaced in recent history.
