I love the kettlebell swing... when it's done correctly.
Often times, people don't understand how to initially use their hips properly to extend at the top. Instead, they'll compensate with lower back movement, putting them at higher risk for injury. Remember, deadlifts and swings aren't bad for your back. Incorrect execution of the deadlift and the swing is bad for your back.
This week's Move Better Monday breaks down my favorite drill for teaching people how to extend their hips at the top of a swing. By breaking this common bad habit, you're setting yourself up for your best possible swing.
