Hey it’s Nick Ortego here. I’ll show
you how to do a variation of the
kettlebell row. In this variation we’ll
be using both arms at the same time. A
key component of this is the position
you start in. That position is with the
hips hinged, so you’re bent over and that
bending is coming from the hip joints,
rather than from the spine. So it doesn’t
look like this. It looks like this. Master
that position first before you attempt
this exercise. I’m going to link on the
end screen and in the video description
to a video that shows you how to master
that, so you can hit that hip hinge.
Don’t even try this unless you can hip
hinge. if you can’t hit hinge this
exercise is not for you. Work on your
hinging first. So I’m going to hinge at
the hips and pick up both kettlebells.
And I’m gonna pull the shoulder blades
back like this from the side looks like
Inhale and exhale.
