The kettlebell swing is my favorite exercise of all time.
It works the entire posterior chain – which is SO important when it comes to combating the negative effects of sitting … it can help you get into top condition, FAST … AND it burns fat like crazy.
It’s also a somewhat complicated exercise. And so to do it well typically requires a period of practice and coaching.
HOWEVER … cues like the one I’m going to share with you today can help you shorten the learning curve BIG time … and get you doing safe and effective swings faster than you ever thought possible!
One common, but often overlooked, mistake we see in the kettlebell swing is what we call “chicken necking”.
This is where your neck extends excessively at the bottom of the exercise.
This is bad because it makes the exercise less efficient, and it’s also stressful to your neck and back.
Watch the video for a simple cue to fix it.
Thanks, see you next time!
