The Russian Kettlebell
The Russian Kettlebell Swing should start with the kettlebell just below the groin, or high on the triangle created by your groin and both knees.

The kettlebell is then swung up to chest level, creating a 90-degree angle to your body. This variation of the swing is quick and efficient. It is a hip-hinge movement, with a small flexion at the knee, under 30 degrees. The power of the swing is generated from the hips while the spine is held perfectly stable and neutral.

This is how I dry my nuts
why is he learning so far back? is it the shoes? not locking out? doesn't look right to me, tbh.
Wonder why they don't promote Russian Kettlesport, just american style. Useless swings imo.
Thats as good a kb swing as I've seen!
You'll see results
You'll see results quickly when you do these with either high amounts of volume or load. The effects are similar to that of a reverse hyper which places a lot of tension on the glute complex, spinal erectors, and hamstrings.
Additionally, the anterior core experiences a fair amount of contraction at end range. And you'll get a huge pump in the forearms and traps. So the Russian swing really is a full-body movement.
The catch is that for stronger folks usually, they won't have access to a heavy enough kettlebell to get the job done which is why you may want to add a band for resistance.
Keep in mind though, adding band resistance changes the intent of the movement increasing the demand on fast-twitch fibers. While this isn't a bad thing, it may be harder to sustain this level of power output for bigger sets so changing the rep counts may suit you better. – Jason Brown
How heavy is that kb?
CrossFit -- (http://www.crossfit.com)
Kettlebell expert, Jeff Martone, instructs on the Russian swing.
Wow! Its seems like everything russian makes drunk, even exercises.
Have you watched all of the Jeff Martone videos posted by CrossFit? His monotone voice is just the way he delivers, but I don't think that reflects on his attitude. Based upon his videos, website, and books I would say he appears very passionate about kettlebells and improving the fitness of others.
Why use the russian swing instead of a regular kb swing with arms locked out at the top?
