1. KETTLEBELL EXERCISES STRENGTHEN THE GLUTES
It has been observed that people with low back dysfunction often exhibit “gluteal amnesia”. And if not overcome with proper recruitment pattern practice, it is likely to lead to more back problems as the back has to take over the lifting task of the powerful glutes. The glutes are strongly emphasized in kettlebell training.
2. KETTLEBELL EXERCISES STRETCH THE HIP FLEXORS
Research has shown, weak glutes are associated with tight hip flexors. The RKC system is second to none in promoting hip flexor flexibility.
3. KETTLEBELLS DEVELOP BACK ENDURANCE
The #1 spine biochemist in the world, concluded that while lower back strength surprisingly does not appear to reduce the odds of back problems, muscular endurance does. Enter the high repetition swing and snatch.
