Kettlebell swing

The kettlebell swing is a popular lower-body exercise emphasizing the hamstrings, glutes, and back muscles. It is often used to train explosive power, for aerobic or cardiovascular conditioning, in circuit training, or as an accessory movement for the deadlift.


  1. Trains hip, glute, back, grip, and core strength
  2. Burns calories and creates a cardiovascular challenge
  3. Can be trained with lighter weights for endurance, medium weights for power, or heavy weights for strength
  4. Trains the same muscles as the deadlift, but many people find it easier on the lower back
