Start in a standing position with arms fully extended and hands grasping the kettlebell. Begin by pushing your butt backwards, allowing your torso to angle forward, and your knees to bend slightly, thus loading the hamstrings. Then, violently extend the hips and knees, and swing the kettlebell upwards until held directly overhead. Return the kettlebell to the starting position by pulling it back down along the same path it travelled up.


  • Rogue Kettlebells
    The Rogue Kettlebell was designed around these requirements. Premium Material: We started with the highest quality first run iron ore available, not scrap. Void free surface: We use a proprietary casting process so each bell can reach the highest quality and have the smoothest finish possible, free of voids or other surface defects. This also allows us to virtually eliminate the seam on the handle. Single Piece Casting: The Rogue Kettlebell is cast in one solid piece, creating a stronger, more reliable handle and a void free surface. The Rogue Kettlebell does not use plastic caps, plugs, or patches like lower quality products.
