Exercise of the Week

Kneeling Kettlebell Swing

This week I’ve simply added a little twist to the standard KB Swing.  Simple take one knee down to the ground.  Make sure whatever knee is on the ground, the same hand is holding the KB.  If you try the opposite, the exercise won’t flow very well and it will throw everything off.

Focus on doing this exercise just like the normal swing.  Use your hips for your momentum here.  While dropping the KB, push the hips back.  On the way up, focus on pushing with the hips to get the KB moving forward again.  You’re really going to feel a stretch in that hamstring of the front leg, and the quad of the back leg.

Focus on form, because when done right, this can be a great exercise for core strengthening and flexibility.
