Abstract

SUMMARY: MODIFIED KETTLEBELL SWINGS PLACE A GREATER EMPHASIS ON THE VELOCITY OF MOVEMENT AND ON DEVELOPING RAPID ECCENTRIC CONTROL OF THE HAMSTRINGS. THEREFORE, THIS EXERCISE MAY BE A USEFUL INCLUSION IN A TRADITIONAL STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PROGRAM AS A MEANS OF PREPARING THE HAMSTRING MUSCLES FOR THE LOADING CONDITIONS ENCOUNTERED DURING MOST SPORTS.
