I am sitting on an airplane flying to work and I figured I would write about one of my favorite workouts to do. The Kettlebell Swing. I usually start my days off with 3 sets of lightweight swings to warm my body up. The kettlebell swing is a full body workout from the top of your back to the bottom of your legs. Done at a high pace it will definitely get the blood flowing and the heart pumping. The main muscle groups it targets are shoulders, back, hips, butt and legs.
- Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, holding handle of kettlebell with both hands, arms in front of thighs, palms in.
- Squat, keeping chest open and back flat, and hinge forward from hips as you swing kettlebell with control through legs behind you. – FitnessMagazine.com
