The Kettlebell Front Squat

Up and down... it's that simple but you can definitely hurt yourself if you are not careful. Follow the steps below to insure a proper squat form.

  •  Stand shoulder width apart
  •  A neutral spine is maintained
  •  Keep chest up to resist tucking the lumbar spine
  •  The heels and toes are planted the knees track the toes
  •  Pause momentarily on the bottom while staying tight in the midsection
  •  Initiate the ascent with a grunt or hiccup
  •  The hips ascend at the same rate as the shoulders, not faster
  •  The hips and knees fully extend on the top of the squat
  •  It is recommended the neck remain neutral
