A Checklist for Good Kettlebell Form

Part of the Kettlebells For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Executing kettlebell exercises takes a lot of concentration. Commit this checklist to memory, and use it as your guide for getting into the right start position for all your kettlebell exercises:

  • Position your feet shoulder width or slightly wider than shoulder width apart.

  • Put your weight on your heels.

  • Keep your shoulders back and down and chest up.

  • Maintain a tall spine and neutral head position.

  • Look at a focal point on the floor six feet in front of you.

  • Pinch your glutes, tighten your thighs and abs, and pull up your kneecaps.

  • Make sure the only thing in the area immediately surrounding you is the kettlebell you’re using in your routine.
