Kettlebell Double Handed Swings

Primary Muscle Group:  Back

Other Muscle Groups Worked in This Exercise: Lower Back, Traps, Glutes, Hamstrings

Breathing: Breath out as you start the exercise movement, and breath in as you move back to the start position.

Execution: Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width and grab the kettlebell by the handle with each hand and stand up. Swing the kettlebell down between your legs and sit back as if you were squatting. Explode your hips forward and the momentum will carry the kettlebell up and forward. It also takes some of the strain off your wrists if you use 2 hands on one heavy kettlebell.
