The Kettlebell Swing – Power?

By JoAnna Dettmann | In Blog | on May 9, 2020

The Kettlebell Swing

Want to express power?

This movement exemplifies the “core to extremity” premise by utilizing a hinge position and allowing the bell to travel through space with the energy our hips have created.

Unfortunately, one of the most common flaws we see with a kettlebell swing is athlete setting up or cycling in a squatting cycle.

The kettlebell swing also allows for a lot of customization options as far as range of motion and requires less skill than oly lifts.

Here’s some intentional reasoning as to how you might use the KBS:

– Swap to Russian swings to avoid going overhead.
– Replace a high skill movement in a workout, such as a hang power clean, when fitness is the goal and not specific skill development.
– Use as a substitute when you need to hinge but do not feel comfortable pulling from the floor.
