The swing is the best kettlebell exercise for fat loss.
It’s a total-body move that burns TONS of calories, engages the entire posterior chain (muscles in the back of the body), and will get you into amazing cardio condition, all at the same time.
And, no matter if you’re just getting started with the move, or if you’ve been doing it for a while … you can always improve / refine your technique, and get better at it!
Got a new video that takes you through a simple swing “progression”, and covers how to do the:
— 1/2 swing
— standard HardStyle KB swing
— one hand swing
Plus some additional coaching points on how to get the most out of each move, while at the same time doing it safely and effectively.
Check it out:
Kettlebell Swing Technique Tips
— Master the KB deadlift movement FIRST before you progress to the swing
— First progression is the 1/2 swing – allows you to focus on the LOWER body portion of the move
— Second progression is the standard HardStyle swing – same movement, ‘bell just comes up a bit higher
— Bottom of the move looks JUST like a deadlift … and so is the top! THAT’s why you must master the KB DL first
— Third progression is the one arm swing – still same movement pattern, KB is just swung with one hand instead of two – also (optionally) can turn the handle of the kettlebell down, internally rotated that is, at the bottom of the move
