Trainer’s Tips

  • Do not squat down as you swing the kettlebell. The motion should be in your hips.
  • Do not use your arms to swing the kettlebell up. The movement should be created by the hip thrust.
  • As you swing the kettlebell between your legs you should feel tension in your hamstrings and glutes.
