Hope your week is off to a great start.
I mentioned last time that since we’ve been covering a lot on kettlebell workouts lately, that we’d be going “back to basics” for a minute and talking about some technique stuff.
Whether you’re just getting started – or you are an experienced KB enthusiast – this stuff is KEY to getting the most out of your training.
Now then …
It is critical that you master the form of two basic KB exercises before you move on to more advanced ones. These two basics are the Turkish get up and the swing.
The Turkish get up will help condtion your wrists for your cleans and presses and snatches, build shoulder mobility for these same moves, and a whole lot more.
Today we’re going to talk about the kettlebell swing.
The swing is the foundation of most HardStyle ballistic movements, like the clean and the snatch.
In today’s video, you’ll find a super basic technique progression to learn the proper movement pattern in the HardStyle kettlebell swing.
Follow the progression and use the tips in the video … practice them … and you’ll be well on your way to KB swing mastery:
