While the kettlebell swing is one of my favorite exercises for improving your power on the trail, it does use both legs at the same time. This means that you can easily develop an asymmetry between the contributions of each side if you don’t watch it. This means that you need a way to check and fix any issues that can hold back your progress.
I use a unique set of exercises to help me with this problem – the TGU Elbow Bridge and Single Leg Swing. These exercises isolate each hip and forces them to work independently, allowing for better swings when you put them back together. Check out this video demo to see how to perform these exercises and use this drill to help improve your overall hip power.
