Breathing for the kettlebell swing

Emily Friedel

There are basically two types of breathing you can use when swinging kettlebells: power breathing or anatomical breathing.

Power breathing involves exhaling forcefully on the concentric phase (the upward phase of the swing) and inhaling on the eccentric phase (the backswing).  Power breathing is the type of breathing you would use for most of your traditional weight training and is the type of breathing most people are familiar with.  Power breathing is better suited to heavy weights and lower reps – the idea is that inhaling will create intra-abdominal pressure to stabilise the spine when it is in a more vulnerable position.
