Kettlebell Front Squat

Instructions

Preparation

Hold two kettlebells in front of shoulders, one with each arm positioned close to body. Stand with feet shoulder width or slightly wider.

Execution

Bend knees forward slightly while allowing hips to bend back behind, keeping back taut and knees pointed same direction as feet. Descend until thighs are just past parallel to floor. Extend knees and hips until legs are straight. Return and repeat.

Comments

Wrist supporting kettlebell should be held straight. Keep head facing forward, back straight, chest high, arms straight to sides, and feet flat on floor; equal distribution of weight through forefoot and heel. Knees should point same direction as feet throughout movement. See Squat Analysis.
