How to: Stand with your feet more than shoulder-width apart. Your spine should be straight. The hips and your behind stick out behind you as you lower your body into a squat. Stand up as you swing out. Maintain good posture throughout. Allow the kettlebell to pass through the middle of your spread legs in a swinging motion. Swing the kettlebell out from between the legs and raise in front of your chest. Remember to straighten back up and thrust your hips as you swing the kettlebell back up to chest level.
Why: The kettlebell swing strengthens your hip, back and thigh muscles. It teaches your body how to physically absorb impact, rather than be overwhelmed by it. It also enhances flexibility and cardiovascular endurance.
