Kettlebell Swing Start

The start position in the kettlebell swing can be done two ways.  One way is you can deadlift it first and then begin to generate momentum for the swing.  The second way is to start with the kettlebell in front of you.    

  1. Back is maintaining a neutral spine with the kettlebell and your feet make a triangle position.
