The Kettlebell Windmill is not as common as the Swing or the Turkish Get Up but for mountain bikers it is just as important. The lateral hip mobility and core strength that you build with this exercise are the cornerstone for the hip driven counter-lean movement that you need to rail corners. While this exercise may be a bit difficult and require some progression into it, if you can’t do this exercise then you can’t corner as effectively as you could.
This is a low rep exercise and I recommend 1-3 reps per set.
