The kettlebell is a great piece of equipment to use for strength training.

According to Women’s Health Magazine, there are 5 common mistakes when it comes to using a kettlebell. Are you using it properly?

  • Holding the kettlebell wrong: Stand tall, keep your elbow close to your body, and don’t let your wrist drop back. The kettlebell should rest against the outside of your forearm.
  • Picking it up incorrectly
  • Swinging the kettlebell to aggressively
  • Leaning back too far: Don’t bend at the top, instead suck in your abs and flex your glutes to hold your body steady and protect your back.
  • Tilting your shoulders
