For those of you looking for variations of kettlebell exercises that continue to improve your hip flexibility and strength, try the "Bottom-up Kettlebell Cossack." Dr. Horwitz and myself are seen here demonstrating the movement using an 88lbs kettlebell:
sure to maintain maximum tension in your arms, shoulders, and core to
ensure stability of the kettlebell. Once you have mastered the
exercise, it becomes a full body lesson in tension, "connectedness," and
precision movement of the kinematic chain!
