|The Swing is the most basic, essential and functional of movements in HardStyle kettlebell training. As is stated in the title of this post, it’s one of the best single exercises around for all-around strength and conditioning. In fact, the Swing by itself – mixed with some other basic body weight moves – is enough to form a complete training program, help you lose fat and get you in great shape.
As I write this blog post, I’m in the midst of putting together a new program that will take you through the ins and outs of how to perform (and master) the kettlebell Swing, solutions to many common technique problems complete with drills to fix them, and workout routines using only Swings and a few other basic body weight moves. So to kick things off and to give you a little taste of what to expect, here are some links to a series of posts I’ve done on this blog that cover Swing technique basics, fixes to common problems, and sample workout routines. Enjoy!
