Kettlebell Swings & Snatches for Increased Mountain Biking Power

The kettlebell swing and snatch are two of my favorite exercises for increasing mountain bike specific power. The hip action and upper body demands are very similar to riding a bike and I still say that doing a hard KB swing or snatch workout is as close as you can come to the physical demands of a trail ride without throwing your leg over the bike.

While most people who read my blog and follow my MTB Kettlebell Conditioning Program are familiar with kettlebell swings there are a couple of really cool variations that I use in my facility and have never shown before. I shot this video to show you the progressions I use to help a rider improve their power and body position on the bike with these two powerful (pun intended) exercises.
