Lowering from the Lockout into the Rack Position – 005 – Kettlebell Sport Science

Continuing our discussion regarding lumber hyperextension (with a brief detour in episode 004),  we look at ways that we can diminish this while lowering from the lockout position into the rack position.

Key points from today’s episode:

  • Softer “landings are safer”
  • Contract abdomen to avoid excessive lumbar extension
  • I’m having more fun editing these videos.
