The two handed kettlebell swing is the center of the kettlebell universe. It's ruggedly simplistic and effective. It teaches us to explode, tense up appropriately and relax all within a second or two; an extremely well-coordinated, athletic effort.
The cardiovascular and strength building benefits are second to none, though it takes time to develop great technique and get the most out your kettlebell workouts.
Some key points to remember (while you explosively swing a hunk of iron) are to use your torso and hips to swing the kettlebell rather than your arms and then relax at the top and let the kettlebell float. Also, in order to access the most power possible and keep your back safe, avoid squatting and letting the bell drop below your knees.
