Daily Dose of Coach #259: Bad Kettlebell Swings and Nickelback

Not too long ago I tweeted that "watching bad kettlebell swings is kind of like listening to Nickelback."

Though speaking of two different sensory terms, seeing and hearing, they both offer distaste and can leave one cringing and rethinking what they are doing with their life at that moment.

Okay, that's a little dramatic, but kettlebell swings done right are one of the greatest exercises to build posterior chain strength, powerful hips, good looking glutes and burn a lot of calories.

Done correctly it can help to regain posture, battles the ill effects of sitting, strengthen your heart, and burn the fat off of you.

One of the biggest mistakes people make when doing the swing is "squatting" instead of "hinging." This settle difference makes all the difference in what this exercise accomplishes.
