Get Your Swing Right

13 Jun

A lot of people have questions on the swing. Below is a quick video we shot this afternoon for you guys. Bare with us, we only did one take!

Key Points:

1. Hip Hinge – Move from the hips! The KB Swing is basically a dynamic deadlift. IT IS NOT A SQUAT.

2. Lock Out Quicky To A Plank Position – The lock out is crisp and hard. Glutes engaged, shoulders packed, stomach braced.

3. Relaxation / Tension / BREATHE – The breathing is huge in perfecting the swing. Sniff air into the stomach, exhale with maximum tension. Alternate between controlled relaxtion and bursts of tension.
