9.19.17 – Kettlebell Swing

The Kettlebell Swing
-Works so many muscles at once! Hips, glutes, quads, hamstrings, core, back, shoulders. Plus, great cardio! ❤️
-The set up: place your kettle bell about a foot in front of you, instead of between your feet, allowing your first swing backward to have some momentum.
-Mostly a hip movement! (See DB snatch tips) Your hips will propel the bell, not your arms. But, be sure to keep your shoulders, core, and back engaged.
-Firm feet! Push your heels through the floor to engage your glutes.
-Loosen your grip! Again, the bell will propel up on its own… let it!
