Before You Start an Exercise Program Consult Your Physician

One Arm Front and Side Swings

By Mike Holman JD, CPT

I do kettlebell exercises as part of my strength training routine. Kettlebell exercises are efficient and effective because they engage many muscle groups. With any exercise, always make sure you warm up and use proper form.

In this video, Rex demonstrates the one arm front and side swings. They work his core muscles, as well as his arm, shoulder, and back muscles. Rex supersets these exercises, going directly from one to the other with no rest. I incorporate them into a kettlebell/body weight circuit with eleven exercises. I exercise for thirty seconds and rest for thirty seconds during the circuit. I rest for 90 seconds between circuits.

Rex's goal and my goal is to get a good vigorous workout. If you're not in shape, don't try to exercise vigorously when you start. After you get in shape consider incorporating vigorous workouts into your routine. You'll build cardiovascular capacity and burn fat faster than when you exercise at moderate intensity. You'll even burn calories from vigorous exercise for several hours after you finish exercising.

For these particular exercises, follow Rex's instructions carefully making sure you don't hit your knees. Better yet get someone to teach you kettlebell exercises. I recommend Scott Overholt. Here is a link to his website.
