5. Russian Kettlebell Swings
This exercise is not to be overlooked as it can provide tremendous value in strengthening the posterior chain (lower back, glutes, and hamstrings). Don’t let the reduced range of motion fool you. With heavier loads, the Russian kettlebell swing can pack a punch that will help to improve your overall strength. On days where your shoulders are feeling beat up but you still want to get a good workout, go Russian.
