Push through the heels and squeeze your butt to return to the initial position. Dangerously Fit Academy CEC’s are given to personal trainers who successfully graduate from the course.
The Kettlebell Swing
The swing is one of the fundamental movements of kettlebell training as it is at the core of the fluid movement that kettlebell workouts are all about. The movement targets your hamstrings, back, glutes and the core. Mastering the swing should be your priority while doing your kettlebell courses.
To do the swing, place the kettlebell on the floor at one foot distance from you. Place feet hip width apart and maintain a straight back with the chest thrust outward. Do the hip hinge and grab the kettlebll with both hands. Pull it backward through your legs and in one rapid motion, thrust the hips outward in front so as to swing the kettlebell upward till your chest height. Swing it down and backward again between the legs and repeat.
