Weight Training: Kettlebell Swing
This movement is the kettlebell swing. This movement will train power with all the muscles of the posterior chain as well as develop stability through the core in the shoulder group. When setting up for this movement, it is important for the athlete to center themselves above the kettlebell before beginning the movement and stand into the starting position. The athlete should also receive the kettlebell by moving their hips forward and backward in the hip hinge rather than lowering them down in a squat position.
