Unilateral Kettbell Core Training Exercises

Unilateral Kettbell Core Training Exercises

Unilateral Kettebell Training is something not seen at all outside of FP. By switching to a staggered stance with these kettlebell core exercises, the musculature of your anterior and posterior slings will be stimulated to a high degree. Be sure to work on your MFR and intrinsic core stability before attempting these advanced kettlebell movements.

Swing Intentionally, Not Habitually

    Hi Naudi,
    What kind of shoes are you wearing/do you recommend for your kettlebell training?

    So I guess two important point for this move is to keep light since there is no hip drive to move the KB, mostly a momentum. We all know unilateral KB swings the trunk should stay under anti rotation mode, unlike this type of swing you are teaching. I like this move reminds me of capoeira for some reason.

    It seems that you are not doing the usual pelvic thrust forward and glute squeeze at the top of the swing with this style of swing. May I ask why not?

    Hey Naudi,
    Love your stuff. Watch and utilize it regularly both for myself and my clients.
    My question is in regards to you calling this movement a Unilateral KB Swing. Being that you are in an offset or staggered stance and your lead leg is opposite to your swing arm would it be more accurate to call this a Contralateral KB Swing? Or are you simply calling it unilateral because you aren’t alternating swing arms and working each side individually?
    I understand both of these explanations would work I am just looking for some insight and clarity.
    Thanks Naudi!
