The Kettlebell Swing – Master the Movement
The kettlebell is common in today’s training landscape—with good cause. It’s a simple and incredibly effective method for building strength and endurance. The kettlebell swing—when done right—is an explosive hip hinge that is one of the foundational patterns of human movement. It’s a suitable exercise for almost any client—especially those looking to build lower body strength. Kettlebells don’t require expensive machines or designated facilities. You can use them anywhere indoors or out, allowing you to add some variety to your exercise program.
If you have been training clients for some time, you most likely use kettlebells in your programming. But are you using them correctly? The kettlebell swing is a surprisingly intricate movement that includes various muscle groups and coordinated focus. As a fitness professional, your job is to get your clients moving safely and effectively. This course will help you deliver on that promise.
Delivered by Pete McCall, MS—a fitness expert and regular contributor to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Runner's World and Self—this 60-minute video training will teach you how to perfectly execute the kettlebell swing—and how to teach your clients to do the same. You’ll learn how the kettlebell helps build overall strength, how to program kettlebell workouts based on an individual’s strength and ability. And you’ll learn to become an expert in an exercise that is commonly used in personal training.
You will learn:
- The exercise benefits of the kettlebell swing for developing lower body strength and power.
- To identify the individual components of the swing.
- How to demonstrate a correctly performed kettlebell swing.
- How to safely progress your clients from strength training with the hinge to power training with the swing.
The course itself was awesome. I learned some nuances I wouldn't have thought about even as an experienced fitness professional, and loved how well it followed the ACE-IFT model. I will be sharing some of this info with my students! The only critique I have is that the video kept stopping and buffering repeatedly, which was frustrating *(and could have been a computer issue on my end, though I typically do not have any issues when viewing videos).
Awesome learning experience, learn few interesting things. Thanks to all ACE Team keep doing the great work!
learned a lot!
