How to Safely Perform a Kettlebell Swing

The kettlebell swing helps to strengthen your core and hips while encouraging full body utilization and coordination. Proper technique of this exercise allows for safe, high repetition sets that will improve work capacity, functional explosiveness, and muscular endurance.


This video demonstrates a few key points to remember while performing a kettlebell swing.

  1. The Swing is a Hinge, Not a Squat

  2. The Swing is Explosive, Not Passive

  3. The Core is Engaged, No Excessive Hyper-extension or Rounded Back

  4. The Kettlebell Gets as High as Your Hip Explosiveness

As always, listen to your body and remember to work within YOUR pain-free available range.
