Dumbbell Swings – Part 2

Last week I showed you my preferred way to do dumbbell swings so that you could still incorporate the swing into your training program even if you didn’t have access to a kettlebell.

There was some confusion as to what my preferred grip on the dumbbell is, so I added a little more detailed video.

Regardless, your best bet is to use a grip that you feel comfortable with. Just because this works for me doesn’t mean that it is the ideal grip for you based on the type and size of the dumbbell that you are using.

No Kettlebell, No Problem, Dumbbell Swings

I love having kettlebell swings in my workouts.  It’s a great explosive exercise that gets your heart rate going.  When you pair kettlebell swings up with bodyweight exercises such as push up and/or pull ups you walk away with a nice full body workout that doesn’t take much time.

If you don’t have access to a kettlebell you can still do swings with a dumbbell.  The grip is slightly different but the movement patterns remain the same.  This is my preferred way of doing dumbbell swings, so when you’re limited on equipment try this out.
