Workout Routine for May 2012

1. Kettlebell swing -- Start with the weight in front of you. Lower yourself to the weight by pushing your hips back, with knees slightly bent, and keeping a flat back. Hike the weight back between your legs and snap your hips forward. Allow the force of your glutes and hamstrings to drive the kettlebell up. At the top of the swing, squeeze your glutes. Bring the weight back down between your legs by driving your hips backwards, and repeat the motion. Don’t worry about how high the kettlebell goes, and do not go over shoulder height.
