Two-arm swing

Why? This exercise mobilises joints, gets the heart rate up and sets off a firing sequence through the posterior chain of muscles, especially the glutes.

How? With feet shoulder-width apart, lean forward   from the hips and hold the kettlebell between your legs.  Swing the kettlebell forward to chest height. Exhale and lower to the
start position.
