The kettlebell Swing
Before you attempt any of the kettlebell movements you should seek advice on how to use the kettlebell from a qualified kettlebell trainer.
Swing the kettlebell between your legs up to the position above. At the top position (above) keep your feet rooted to the ground, keep your glutes tight and abdominals are braced. Pull the active shoulder down your back. At the top of the swing guide the kettlebell back down between your legs and repeat. Avoid trying to decelerate the kettlebell on the way down. The breath is out at the top of the swing and in at the bottom.
