Steel Mace: Ancient Weapon Turned Powerful Fitness Training Tool
The Steel Mace or “Gada” was originally used as a deadly weapon in warfare by Hindu and Persian warriors in the 13th century. Due to its functionality and ease of use, Pelwhani wrestlers started using the Macebell for physical training. Nowadays, the steel mace is rapidly becoming known as the 'ultimate full body conditioning tool'. The mace holds almost the entirety of its weight in the ball head, which results in uneven weight distribution. Because of this, steel mace exercises engage smaller stabilizing muscles around our joints. This kind of offset training will increase your core & rotational strength and athletic performance tenfold. Thus, Steel Mace workouts are the epitome of functional training.
UNPARALLELED CRAFTSMANSHIP. Set For Set Steel Maces are forged from steel, sporting an expertly crafted head that is welded onto the knurled steel grip handle; our steel maces are virtually indestructible.

What Size Steel Mace Is Right For You?
SET FOR SET Steel Maces are available in five different weight options 7LB, 10LB, 15LB, 20LB and 25LB.
We suggest starting with the 10LB or 15LB steel mace until you master movements such as 10 to 2, 360 swing, Gravedigger, and the Barbarian squat. People are often surprised at how heavy a 15LB mace actually feels, and putting it into constant movement will be tough, even for some of the biggest people. The beauty of the steel mace is that you can increase the difficulty by moving your hands closer together towards the end of the handle or make it easier by using a spread-out grip with one hand closer to the head while the other remains towards the bottom. Having a wider range of sizes will allow you to get creative with exercises and workouts. If you have any questions about what size steel mace is right for you please don't hesitate to contact us.
I follow a few IG pages where people were doing macebell swings and it looked like a fun workout, something outside of a the typical splits and routines.
I'm not sure how I came across SET FOR SET but I'm glad that I did. The quality of these macebells is fantastic. They just feel good when you're using them and what looked like fun to watch turned out to be even more fun doing it in person!
SET FOR SET macebells have brought a new element to my workouts and to top it off, the twinge in my left rotator cuff is non-existant after a good warm-up with these.
I show these to everyone and they are a 10/10 in my book.
I’m really taken by this weight. Functional training in a fun manner.
It's a hefty 10!
I had purchased a 7lb mace from another company and wanted to try a Set for Set mace. It's a nice thick bar with knurls to grip and steady your moves. The globe and bar feel well balanced.
Workout with Mace
Received my first Mace to supplement my workout routine. It is great and while only 7 pounds, offers a wide range of exercise options. I can feel an increase of mobility in the shoulders and upper body and enjoy the exercises for balance and core strength and mobility. I plan to go up in weight soon. Very happy with the product.
The knurling on the bar provides a really solid grip. Looking forward to adding a 15lb in a few months.
