This 1 fundamental exercise is the foundation of kettlebell work. Without proper swing mechanics, you are a back injury waiting to happen. Learn to perfect your Swing in our Kettlebell Basics 101 workshop. The swing assists in correcting poor posture from hours of sitting hunched over to one of upright, vertical, open and extended.
It’s an exercise that works your posterior chain (backside, back, hamstrings), it works the grip and strengthens your heart, it helps you burn fat like a machine and makes you more athletic. Plus it builds muscle, strength and explosiveness.
Why wouldn’t you do this? It is also one of the most misunderstood exercises of all time too. It is also simple to do, once you know how. This is why learning correct mechanics of the “Hinge” is so important.
The swing is the “gateway” to the clean and the snatch, so great swing technique is a pre-requisite for everything else you want to do kettlebell related.
The kettlebell clean and press is a great exercise because it teaches your whole body to work as a single unit. It will give you power, stamina, resilience, and mental toughness all in one tidy package.
This simple front loaded squat variation is such a fantastic choice for 90% of the gym population because it teaches a complete beginner how to squat correctly.
The position of the load forces 90% of people to tighten up their cores and a few simple cues later almost anyone can squat safely and completely pain free which is always an aim of mine when trying to teach someone this often over-complicated movement!
Another reason I love goblet squats for beginners is that all you need is a moderately heavy object (e.g. a kettlebell) and some space, making this a convenient and portable exercise.
