Mountain Bike Exercise Highlight – The Kettlebell Swing

One of the core tenets of the MTB Strength Training System is that each exercise you do should be done in a way that maximizes the transfer from the gym to the trail. This means that how you move during your exercises is more important than how much you lift or how many reps you do.

Few exercises exemplify this concept like the kettlebell swing. If improving your performance on the trail is the goal then few exercises have the impact of a good kettlebell swing. However, there are several different ways to teach the swing but not all of these ways are right for us as riders.

Over the years I have taught hundreds of riders how to perform this exercise and in that time I have learned the set up and coaching cues that get the best results. In this new video I share a lot of these for the first time and hope that you will benefit from them as much as my clients have.
