Improving the Kettlebell Swing

Kettlebell swings are a great exercise for improving power and strength. They target our core and posterior chain. A proper swing requires a solid hinge pattern as well as coordination and timing. Learning the swing can be tricky – it takes some time for everything to come together. Here are a few common errors to avoid:

Squatting the hinge

(Chest tall – knees bent like a squat)

Swinging low

(Kb too close to the ground during swing)

Over extension 


(Leaning back at top position, lower back extended)

Proper swing

(Chest towards floor, slight knee bend, kb stays close, body aligned in top position)
