The kettle bell swing is an explosive exercise often performed in our Team Training classes. Not only is it a challenging exercise, but it also has great metabolic effects, AKA fat burning. If performed properly, it can be equivalent to running a 6 minute mile pace or cross-country skiing up hill. That’s a lot! Skip the treadmill, grab a kettle bell, and swing away.
Before performing this exercise, it is important to understand the technique. Two major issues often seen with the KB swing are rounding the back and lifting the weight with the arms. Check out one of our athlete’s Jacqueline White, as she performs the proper technique of the KB swing.
