Strength Coach & Personal Trainer Rich Thurman from San Francisco’s Xodus Fitness demonstrates the Kettlebell Suitcase Squats.
Instructions: Start with the feet just about shoulder width apart and the Kettlebell sitting next to mid foot, slightly towards the heel.
Begin to sit straight down into a squat. You may extend one of your arms for balance and stability. If doing the double Kettlebell Suitcase squat then you’ll have two Kettlebells (one on each side).
Once you grab the Kettlebell, begin to ascend upwards and squeeze the Glutes at the top.
Descend back to the bottom of the squat and set the Kettlebells in the same spot that you picked them up from.
Some athletes may need to work on a series of Hip Mobility and Back Mobility drills to help improve this movement.
Benefits: The Kettlebell Suitcase Squats are a great exercise for leg strength. With the Single Arm version, the core and hips must resist rotation and stabilize an uneven load.
Strengthens the Legs, Core, Glutes and Spinal muscles and Shoulders.
