Want more variation in your workout? Exercises performed with kettlebells are a great way to shock your muscles into growth while improving power and explosiveness from the ground up!
Check out VIM’s Kettlebell Video Series – Each week we’ll post a video demonstrating a new kettlebell move. First up, Russian Swing!
- Get Set: Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, toes pointed out, and knees slightly bent; look straight ahead. Place the kb between your legs using a two handed, overhand grip.
- Swing It: Keeping the arch in your lower back, bend your hips back until the kettlebell is between and behind your legs; squeeze your glutes to extend your hips and swing the weight up.
- Bring It Down: Let the weight swing back between your legs as you bend your hips and slightly bend your knees; if it hits you in the butt, you’re doing it right. Extend your hips and knees to reverse the momentum as you immediately begin the next rep.–
