Movement Breakdown Monday: The Kettlebell Swing

On This week’s Movement Breakdown Monday, We discuss the form and cues of the kettlebell swing in 60 seconds 🔥🔥

The Kettlebell Swing
This movement is a dominant tool in the world of hinge/hip power and glute activation!

The kettlebell swing can be utilized with light weight, programmed for endurance and long duration of work, or the kettlebell swings can be utilized with heavier weight, prioritizing power for a strong triple extension.

Prior to performing this exercise, individuals must have a basic understanding of the hinge, both bilateral and unilateral.

Understand that this movement is that, A HINGE. This movement is not a squat. Make sure you are bending or “hinging” at the hips and generating power with your glutes and hamstrings.
