Dual Kettlebell Assisted Trunk Rotation and Hip Hinging

Work on two important motions for function with this mobility drill.

Dual Kettlebell Assisted Trunk Rotation and Hip Hinging
  • grab two kettlebells or dumbbells - preferably as heavy as you can tolerate
  • if using bells, you may need to kneel on a step, I covered the step I was using with a folded yoga mat
  • stack your upper and lower body over one another, getting in neutral, but not overly lordotic in the lumbar spine
  • let the bells drop your scapula into set position
  • lock your hips in IR to prevent hip rotation during trunk rotation
  • picture the rotation coming from your mid trunk/thoracic spine
  • let the bells lead the hip hinge and keep your trunk upright and neutral
  • this should not cause any pain, a sensation of stretch is ok
