The Kettlebell Swing: Benefits and Full Tutorial
Why the kettlebell swing?
If you were looking for a single exercise to care for the human frame you’d probably look for an exercise that helped us regain our posture from one of sitting hunched over to one that was upright, extended, and open.
You’d probably also look for an exercise that worked the posterior chain to overcome all the negative effects of sitting and, if you could find one exercise that could do both of those, you’d probably also wonder if you could find one special exercise that could strengthen your heart and help you lose weight, too.
It’s called the kettlebell swing.
Kettlebell Training is a “movement pattern”, rather than a collection of muscle building exercises.
The basic movements of kettlebell training ignite the entire posterior chain, which are those muscles of the back-side of your body, like the glutes (butt), hamstrings and lower back.
These backside muscles improve our upright posture and athletic functions of running, jumping and throwing activities.
