We need energy propelling forward as we extend our hips and most experienced kettlebell practitioners have this part down. However, the second part of the equation is getting the energy driving backwards; this step is often overlooked.

We are striving for a pendulum motion when swinging a kettlebell.  When we implement the Butt Punch, we also get our power driving backwards getting us closer to the pendulum motion.

We feel that the Butt Punch is such a crucial part of kettlebell training that we even included it in our Kettlebell Swing Guide.

Take a look at the tutorial below and see if your Butt Punch is where it needs to be to bring your kettlebell practice to its optimal level.
