How To Setup For A Kettlebell Swing

The setup for any exercise is extremely important for both safety and efficiency, especially for an explosive exercise like the kettlebell swing.  A great way to remember this is that your setup is your first rep.  

 

Let's start with the width of your stance.  Too wide may result in the knees collapsing in, which can put unnecessary stress on your knees, and will not allow you to powerfully contract your glutes.  

 

Try bringing your feet in a little closer and pay attention to how hard you can squeeze your glutes.  This should result in a more powerful swing.

 

Next, let's focus on the angle of your toes.  Personally, I prefer to point my toes out slightly as this is more comfortable for me.  You do not necessarily have to point your toes straight ahead.  Experiment with the angle at which you point your toes and go with the angle that feels best.

 

Finally, judging your distance from the kettlebell.  Setting up too far away from the kettlebell can result in excess tension in your neck and a very weak setup.  Use your foot to determine your distance.  You'll be surprised that moving closer to the kettlebell can feel more comfortable and ultimately more powerful.

 

Swing on!
