KETTLEBELL SQUAT VARIATIONS
Squatting is one of the fundermantal movements patterns that you use on a daily basis.
Whenever you sit down or stand up, you are effectively performing a squat.
As a baby, unbeknownst to you, you were an expert at squatting, and as you developed into an adult, there’s a chance you and your body forgot how to get down low!
Squatting opens up and closes a number of your main joinst, including the ankles, knees and hips; therefore regular squatting helps keep these joints functinal and mobile.
The ability to squat correctly requires adequate mobility, balance, stability and strength.
When you throw a Kettlebell into the mix, you help turn this exercise into a true full body exercise.
*It is important to remember that if you are unable to perform a squat without a Kettlebell, you need to learn this first before picking up a Kettlebell.*
By changing how you hold the Kettlebell you can alter the difficulty of exercise and add variety to the exercise which will help keep you mentally and physically engaged in your training.
