Lateral Kettlebell Swings

Use Lateral Kettlebell Swings to build your rotational strength. A lot of workouts at the gym do not take into account how much we need to use our rotational muscles on a daily basis. You can perform with one or two kettlebells.

Start by creating momentum with the bell across the body and push with the same foot that is holding the bell (0:40). When the bell hits the apex of the swing, pull down back across the body. Keep your arm straight and relaxed with a neutral spine.

DO NOT let the spine cave over and compromise your posture.

You can perform this movement with two kettlebells as well.

Start with a gentle rotation to generate momentum with a bell in each hand (1:50). As you reach across the body, that is the leg you need to push through with. Keep the arms relaxed and exhale as the bells go up.
