USING THE ULTIMATE SANDBAG TO NAIL YOUR ONE ARM SWING

One Arm Kettlebell Swings are a great progression of the regular two handed version. However, the asymmetrical load on the body is often too big a jump in terms of fighting rotation, generating power and core stability. Instead of just taking steps backward to correct the rotation and sway you may be dealing with, let's take an entirely new approach with the DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Sprinter Stance Deadlift and High Pull.

Rather than switch the upper body holding position as in the One Arm Swing, we make a slight change in foot placement. We keep our feet hip width apart, but slide one foot back slightly (think heel to toe) and keep the heel of the rear foot off the ground. Now we are both asymmetrically loaded but fighting an easier battle from the ground in a lower body position. This will set you up for success when fighting to maintain flying iron from an asymmetrically loaded upper body position.

Once you got the Sprinter Stance Deadlift dialed, stay in that stance and try some High Pulls. These two moves will bridge the gap to awesomeness in your One Arm Kettlebell Swing.
