Personal Trainer Yana of San Francisco based fitness company Xodus Fitness demonstrates a Kettlebell Hip Hinge.
Instructions: Hold the Kettlebell with two hands by the horns.
Pull the Kettlebell close to the chest and squeeze the shoulder blades together.
Hinge forward at the hips with a slight bend in the knees and push the hips back like you’re going to press your bottom against a wall.
Be sure to bend only to the point at which the shoulders are slightly above the hips, which should be above the knees.
Return to the standing position accelerating the hips forwards and squeezing the Glutes.
Benefits: The Kettlbell Hip Hinge is a great exercise for teaching the basic hinge. It is also a great regression to help teach the Kettlebell Swing.
Mastering the Hinge can help athletes understand the body movements required to properly execute the Kettlebell Swing.
Strengthens upper, mid and lower Back, Glutes and Hamstrings.
Progression: Kettlebell Swing
