What are some pointers for doing the KB swing properly?

Make sure to keep your back and neck straight and use your hips to impulse the kettlebell upwards rather than pulling it up with your arms. Keep the kettlebell controlled with your arms and make sure to not let it go higher than your shoulders. When going down, keep the kettlebell controlled by engaging your core.Then, repeat the movement until you are done with the number of repetitions.

What muscles does the KB swing work?

The kettlebell swing focuses on the legs, particularly the glutes and thighs.

What are some pointers for doing the single-arm KB row properly?

If you are not used to doing single arm kettlebell rows you can use a bench to support yourself. You can also support yourself by stepping forward and using one of your legs, putting your arm on it. Make sure to keep your back straight while you pull the kettlebell up until it is at the same height as your stomach, slowly lower it and repeat.

What muscles does the KB row work?

The kettlebell row focuses on the back muscles, specifically the rhomboids and trapezius. It will also work your core and your biceps.
