The Movement – Episode: 13 – Using Kettlebell Swings for Explosive Power

The kettlebell swing is a powerful tool to develop explosive hip extension for sports like baseball, tennis and golf. In all of these rotary power sports, athletes are forced to rapidly rotate their pelvis from a position of anterior tilt to a position of posterior tilt prior to the point of impact in order to create stiffness and translate force from the lower body into the swinging motion.
Check out this episode where I discuss why heavily loaded kettlebell swings are the best choice for athletes to develop power in the hips for rotational athletes.
