skofitThe kettlebell swing is my favorite exercise, but took me months to learn. Even after I finally got it, I am still continuing to refine it. When done correctly, it is a great ballistic movement that combines strength, conditioning, and mobility work. It's an efficient exercise because you don't need a lot of time or space. Some points to consider:
✅ It is a hinge, not a squat. ✅ At the bottom of the swing, your shoulders higher than hips and your hips higher than your knees. There should not be any flexion in your spine. ✅ At the top of the swing, your body should be planking and forming a straight line. Your upper body should not lean back at the top of a swing. Get tall!
✅ Your arms are simply guiding the bell, but your hips are generating the power of the movement. You should not be pulling the bell with your arms. I see people getting the bell to chest height, but with their back extended. This is no bueno!
✅ If you are new to kettlebells, make sure you learn from a properly certified instructor. Learn the hinge and deadlift first.
