Kettlebell swing

Exercise of the week! Start by standing with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width while holding the kettlebell with both hands.

Next, drop into a half squat position while dropping your shoulders slightly. In one fluent motion, bring your body into a standing position while swinging the kettlebell up.

  • Exhale while lowering and inhale while straightening your back
  • Keep the kettlebell close to your pelvis
  • Use your hips to push the kettlebell
