Kettlebell Swing

Skill level: 
Equipment: 
Body parts: 

The kettlebell swing builds power and explosiveness in the hips and lower body. This exercise also increases strength in the lower back, core, and shoulders, and is also one of the most metabolic exercises. The swing is important because it trains the hip-hinge movement, which is essential to exercises such as the deadlift and all bent-over rows. The exercise also increases glutes activation, and improves strength on other lower-body lifts.
