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.
