Kettlebell Swing Breakdown Series

The Hinge

We are breaking down the kettlebell swing! This is the first of 10 videos that will help you learn or refine the kettlebell swing. The most fundamental part of a good kettlebell swing is the hinge so that’s where we are starting. Without understanding how to hinge your swing will never reach it’s full potential.

Some of the key points to remember:

  • Maintain a neutral spine (head, upper back, and butt stay on the stick)
  • Push through the ground as you stand up keeping the whole foot on the floor (don’t lift up your toes)
  • Soft knees (knees bend, but they don’t come forward)
  • Exhale as you stand up

Let us know if you have any questions. We are always happy to help with proper form!
