Okay, this tip might seem a little “weird” …
But trust me, it’s HIGHLY effective for fixing your KB swing form!
Check it out:
I have a simple – but HIGHLY effective – tip to share with you today that will help you improve your form on the kettlebell swing.
One of the most common problems with the swing that we see is folks having trouble with what we call the hip hinging pattern.
What people end up doing instead, is something that resembles a squat and then a front raise with the KB … which is NOT the correct way to do the exercise.
So a great way to practice that hip hinging movement, and do it in sort of a natural way, is to do a couple of vertical jumps right before you do your swings.
The movement pattern, and what’s happening with the lower body, is going to be very similar to what happens during a swing.
The other benefit is that the vertical jump drill is going to get you really close to where you want to be in terms of proper foot stance for the exercise.
And there is a simple, but VERY effective, drill to help you improve your form on the kettlebell swing.
Try it before your next swing workout, and see the benefits right away!

PS – I have a “little black book” of my favorite kettlebell boot camp workouts – which I’m always adding to, tweaking, etc. – and 90% of the time, that’s where I pull my daily boot camp workouts from. This way, I don’t have to spend hours a day racking my brain for fresh and fun training ideas.
Of course, I have a plan and progression for my programming over time – but this method makes my life SO much easier.
Now, if you are a boot camp instructor – or, if you are just a boot camp workout enthusiast – you should be doing the same. It’s the only way to go!
Interestingly though, based on talks with dozens of friends and associates in the business – most people KNOW they should be keeping their own version of a “little black book” – but for whatever reason, DON’T.
So I’ve come up with a solution to this problem. I’ve put together dozens of my favorite kettlebell boot camp resources, for you to “steal” and use with your campers.
