The main reasons why you might participate in axe throwing with family, friends or work colleagues could be the fun and enjoyment that it provides, and we dare say that for many others, that will be the case too. However, given the way in which an axe is thrown, it is also true that axe throwing can provide several benefits for your physical health and overall well-being.
Now, we are not suggesting for a moment that axe throwing is at the same level as jogging, gymnastics, weight training, or yoga when it comes to enhancing your physique, stamina, and suppleness. However, there are several ways that axe throwing can contribute positively to your physical health, and below, you will see that we have highlighted five different ways that it can do so.
Physical Health Benefit #1 – Building Strength And Endurance
If you have ever tried to throw an axe, you will know that it is a heavy object. That weight feels even greater when you have to pull the axe back and then launch it towards your target. The effort required for that action, especially several times during your axe throwing session, is a great boost to your strength as each throw requires working several muscles in your arms, legs, torso, and shoulders. Your endurance is also enhanced, meaning you feel less fatigued after multiple throws.
