Jimmy Rollins - Kettle Ball Swings

Jimmy Rollins, an MVP shortstop for the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team, teaches the kettle ball swing training exercise. ?Kettle ball swing is actually something I made up for Jimmy. I thought about his movement when he is doing his trunk rotation and stuff. Basically, it's just swinging on a lateral movement. You're swinging upwards and we're coming down and basically it's using the antagonist and the agonist muscles, meaning the opposite muscles because you're exploring one side. And then, you're coming back down and you got to control it going back down. So it's like coming back and forth and you're really working the transverse abdominis and you learn how to roll your hips too and everything. It's not something that you should be using a lot of lately. I think there is no more than like 8-10 pounds of working through the hip, following the motion and to see everything has to do with hips and explosion and be able to hit that ball. That's what we're trying to work on. Usually those with D3 sets of 20.?
