Below is a video outlining the program for you to follow. I decided to write this short blog to accompany the video to make the whole thing clearer for you. Let me just clarify a few things first.
The kettlebell swing is an excellent exercise. It incorporates one of the fundamental movement patterns – the hip hinge – it helps develop explosive strength, core and spine stability and cardiovascular fitness. Because I love me some kettlebell action I thought I would break down the swing and some of its common variations. Technique and form are super important when exercising, especially when you add load to that exercises and even more if there is a dynamic explosive element to that loaded movement. Many people do the swing wrong and put themselves at risk of injury.
OK, you’re not an idiot not as much as me anyway. But, I want to explain a really simple template for programming your workouts. It’s super easy to over complicate these things, so this blog is going to be a basic step by step guide on how to put together your own training plans, why you should program it that way and also how a trainer can involve their clients in the process.
