In Russia, kettlebells have long been the fitness-tool of choice for Olympic athletes, special forces and elite units, and martial artists. Typical kettlebell exercises build strength and endurance, particularly in the lower back, legs, and shoulders, offer improved mobility, range of motion and increase grip strength. The basic movements, such as the swing, snatch, and the clean and jerk, engage the entire body at once.

With your arms acting as pendulums, you swing the kettlebell from either in between or outside your legs, backward and forward, using power from the hips to drive the swing in a fluid movement.
This is a swing, where kettlebell rotation is initiated from the lowest point of the swing, continuing the rotation to 360 degrees and completing it between the chest and shoulder, where it then rests in rack position.
This movement involves lifting the bell from chest level to above the head.
This is also an extended swing, followed by rotating the kettlebell over your wrist through nearly 360 degrees, above your head with a full arm extension.
