Here’s The Kettlebell Swings Partner Workout:
You can also refer to this kettlebell workout as the You Go – I Go swing workout.
Lose the shoes as there are many advantages to training barefoot or with minimal footwear which your training environment will dictate.
Set the clock for 10 Minutes
You swing the kettlebell for 10 repetitions and then your partner will immediately swing the kettlebell for 10 repetitions.
You and your partner will keep switching back and forth like this until you hit the 10 minute mark.
While your partner is swinging, this is your built in rest period so stay loose and pay attention to when your partner finishes their 10 reps so you can immediately perform yours.
We realize that we performed less than the 10 minutes called for in the video for this swing workout only because we want you to get a feel for patterning the routine and not bore you to death watching us do rep after rep!
Tips and Guidelines:
Do a proper warmup before performing this kettlebell swing workout
Pay attention to your surroundings and keep the exercise area clear of any obstructions.
If you can’t keep up with your partner and you get fatigued to where your swing technique falters, do a kettlebell deadlift as a back-off move in order to finish the workout.
You can even work in a third person for this kettlebell swing workout. Same principles apply, but all you do is have one person do their 10 swings and the other two people act in tandem as a unit and do their 10 swings and go back and forth. It’s fun and challenging-give it a try!
As this workout gets easier, further challenge yourself by increasing the time upwards to 15 minutes, use a heavier kettlebell or increase the repetitions. Play around with these variables and only change one at a time as long as your technique and form remain sound.
