Swinging This Just how you like it!

Thursday, April 4, 2013

Yep the name says it all, It is time for some Kettlebell swings. From experience, these can cause serious pain if done wrong. I am still having to wrap y wrist up from it :( The problem is, a lot of people let the kettlebell determine where the wrist is going to move and that is not the way it should happen. You really need to try to keep your wrist locked wile doing these. I had to go 2 weeks without even picking up my kettlebell from doing this wrong. So from experience, this is something that really needs to be fixed before damage occurs. Trust me it is not fun at all. I love my kettlebell and I miss it.  This Time I am going to start with the video and then show you in text how to properly execute this exercise.

 • Stand with your feet 6–12 inches outside of shoulder width on either side, each foot pointed outward about 30 degrees. If toes pointed straight ahead were 12:00 on a clock face, your left foot would point at 10:00 or 11:00, and your right would point at 1:00 or 2:00.
• Keep your shoulders pulled back and down to avoid rounding your back.
• The lowering movement or back swing, is a sitting-back-on-a-chair movement, not a squatting- down movement.
• Do not let your shoulders go in front of your knees at any point. This will cause strain on your back.
• Imagine pinching a penny between your butt cheeks when you pop your hips forward. This should be a forceful pop, and it should be impossible to contract your rear more.

Don't forget to secure your rist and don't let the wait pop it in different directions. this is where injury occurs.
