Samoa Joe Goes Iron Shiek On ‘Celtic Warrior Workouts’
Samoa Joe may be the master of the Coquina Clutch, but he’s also the master of the Indian Clubs in the gym. Sheamus shared the following clip of Joe appearing on Celtic Warrior Workouts and even cuts a promo fitting for the Iron Shiek:
WWE Superstar Sheamus aka The Celtic Warrior here… When I suggested to wrestling legend Samoa Joe we do a workout together, he said get some Indian Clubs. Few weeks later the 15lbs clubs came, I put them in my carry-on bag and headed off on the road. Snow storms, closed gyms, missing camera men, some hangovers, and a few more spanners in the works – ended-up carrying Joe’s Indian Clubs around for 3 weeks!
Finally we got to do the Brave Change workout by begging my pals at Funko HQ in Everett to loan us their gym for an hour, and hey presto! We got Samoa Joe and his Indian Clubs on video… and what a unique workout it was, turns out using Indian Clubs / Persian Clubs is one of the most ancient training routines there are as warriors of the past used them to train for heavy sword battle. Plus WWF star, The Iron Shiek used the clubs as part of his gimmick back in the day, which gave Big Joe an excuse to cut a Shieky promo. Show off.
Add Japanese Push-Ups and the Ab Roller in the mix, and this workout almost went beyond… Brave Change.
