This Position or That Position?

Take a look at the photos below. Whether you have knowledge of the human body (or not) or you are a coach (or not), I’d bet that you’d be able to identify which of the two receiving positions are better to support a load.

Knowing and doing, however, are often two separate things. Today, you’ll have multiple opportunities to receive the kettlebells in a hips back, strong support position.  The hips forward position below is a common fault that seems to work in the moment at times for newer athletes, but is far less efficient and more susceptible to injury.

Aim for good position and be willing to make adjustments from rep to rep in your training today. Good luck and have fun!
