Benefit #1 – Increased Power
The initiation of a kettlebell swing requires a very powerful hip thrust. You have to use your entire body to get the kettlebell up.
You will be using your glutes and hamstrings to make this happen. The muscles you use to lift a kettlebell are known as the power zone muscles.
These are the muscles you use to lift just about everything. When you use a heavy kettlebell you increase muscle power.
When using heavy kettlebells be sure to put safety first. Only do a few reps to ensure you can get through the entire motion with proper form.
