Kettlebell Swing

Kettlebell Swing with AguaForce weights

What muscles do Kettlebell Swing work?

The kettlebell swing primarily works the muscles of the posterior chain, including the glutes, hamstrings, and lower back muscles. The movement also engages the muscles of the core, such as the abs and obliques, and the shoulders, forearms, and grip strength.

How do you do a Kettlebell Swing?

Here's a step-by-step guide to performing a kettlebell swing:

  • Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, with the AguaForce Weight positioned between your feet.

  • Hinge at the hips and bend your knees slightly to grab the AguaForce Weight handle with both hands.

  • Keep your back straight, engage your core, and explosively drive through your hips to swing the AguaForce Weight upward.

  • As the AguaForce Weight reaches chest height, squeeze your glutes and use your hips to propel the weight forward.

  • Allow the AguaForce Weight to swing back between your legs and repeat the movement, using the momentum of the swinging weight to perform consecutive reps.

Note: It is important to maintain proper form and use your hips, not your arms, to generate the swinging motion. Start with a lighter weight and gradually increase the weight as you become more comfortable with the movement.
