The kettlebell swing is a phenomenal exercise for burning fat, getting stronger and improving endurance. The key is to learn how to do it properly so as to avoid injury and get the most out of every rep and workout. A great kettlebell swing starts with a strong hike pass. When you hike the kettlebell back make sure the handle passes above your knees and to connect your forearms to your inner thighs. If this connection is not made, then you will not access the full power of your hips and will place too much stress on your shoulders and arms. An athletic position should be maintained throughout the hike pass as this will translate to enormous power on your first swing. Lastly, make sure to inhale through your nose as you hike the kettlebell back as this will properly coordinate your breathing and allow you to perform more reps and swing heavier kettlebells.
