We have one week down in the four week Winter Challenge at CrossFit Scottsdale! Have you been practicing? One major way to improve your WOD times is to work on the technique of each movement. With more efficient technique you will be less fatigued as you go on to the other movements.
Maybe the most important thing about the kettle bell swing is the movement of your hips. Avoid squatting when at the bottom of the swing. The movement should be more hip dominant: hinge at the hips as the weight comes down and pop them open to make the weight come up. Keep your back flat and core tight through the whole movement. Take some time to watch the video below and work on your technique. Sometimes it is difficult to feel what you are doing wrong so schedule some time with a coach or grab a friend and have them video your movement. That way you can see what you are doing and make some corrections.
Three weeks to go…Keep up the hard work and training!
