If you haven’t noticed, at Hybrid Athlete, we are huge fans of kettlebell training. Building functional strength, while burning through calories, and maxing out the heart rate are all sure signs of a quality kettlebell workout. Given the benefits of training with kettlebells, more and more people are seeking out trainers or at-home training programs that feature kettlebells.
Unfortunately, with the rise in popularity, I have also seen a rise in injuries. Inexperience, improper form, and “hardcore” training styles can lead to pain in the hamstrings and lower back that turn people away from kettlebells. But, don’t let one bad experience or injury turn you away from kettlebell training altogether. Instead, check out this kettlebell Q & A video that explains why kettlebell training hurts your back and what you can do about it. Once you watch that video be sure to take a look at our kettlebell video library below.
