You Can Master The Kettlebell Swing

The swing zaps fat without the dishonor of aerobics, and it develops explosive power and never-quit conditioning. Since I introduced the kettlebell to the West a decade and a half ago, the swing has become a staple in the training of elite fighters and athletes, and has spurred a number of scientific studies that have documented its benefits.

Now it is your turn to behold the power of the Russian kettlebell.

Getting Started

When you start working out with kettlebells, begin by learning the “Hard Style” swing. A ballistic builder of both strength and conditioning, the swing is the center of the KB universe and being able to do one safely and effectively is a prerequisite for other kettlebell skills. The better your swing, the better you will be at the other lifts. Before we get to proper form, here are few things to keep in mind:

  • Start by buying a kettlebell from a reputable manufacturer. 
  • The kettlebell swing demands deadlift competence
  • Swing barefoot or in minimalist shoes.

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 super exercise that could strengthen your heart and help you lose weight, too.

 It’s called the kettlebell swing.
