Learning how to properly hinge at the hips is key to an effective, powerful, safe kettlebell swing.
But a lot of our new clients have trouble with it at first.
One of my favorite drills to teach the movement pattern is shown in today’s video. It only takes a few seconds, but it is very powerful.
Here’s how to do it:
[new video] KB Hip Hinge – Easiest Way to Get it Right
– Get set up like you’re about to do a KB swing
– Instead of swinging the ‘bell, do a couple of vertical jumps
– Then go right into a couple of swings
Since the proper movement pattern used when doing a swing is very similar to the one most people naturally use when they jump, this drill works great.
Give it a try yourself, or with your clients if you are a fit pro, for safer and more effective KB swings, starting today!
