How To Do A Kettlebell Front Squat

  •  Stand feet hip width apart, or more. Toes forward.
  • Draw in and brace the abs.
  • Pull shoulder blades back and down.
  • Hold the kettlebells on the sides of the handles and lock elbows into the side of the body.
  • Keeping the torso upright, drive the hips back, aim tailbone toward floor, and squat down to a maximum depth that posture and alignment can be maintained.
  • Return to standing position.
  • Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
  • Move slowly throughout the exercise.
TECHNIQUE: Maintain a long back from crown of head to tailbone and avoid the following. Bringing the shoulders forward, arching the back, elbows flaring outward, knees caving inward, or toes excessively turning out.
MODIFICATION: 1) Reduce the squat angle by lowering halfway. 2) Use a lighter weight.
