The hip hinge is one of the fundamental movement patterns for human beings and Cavemantraining has provided a guide to help the reader own the movement. Broken down into component parts, with definitions and videos, this little ebook is big on performing the hip hinge correctly. It is sure to become a valuable addition to your reference library.”
Wendy Chappell


The hip hinge movement alone is covered by more than 18 pages of information, following is the index of the ebook which you’ll receive with the course.

Know, that just about everything from the hip hinge material transfers to the swing, which is also a hip hinge, but explosive. The hip hinge is the pre-cursor to the kettlebell swing, once you understand the hip hinge you’ll not only be able to perform a perfect kettlebell swing, you’ll also be able to perform better with your conventional deadlift, bent-over row and more importantly with everyday tasks like lifting and reaching for objects.


As a Certified Personal Trainer for 14 yrs with an associate degree in Physical Therapy as well, I can say this course would greatly benefit beginners through advanced. Cavemantraining breaks down in detail the hip hinge which is a crucial movement for proper deadlifts, kettlebell swings and countless other “hip hinge” exercises.

In my humble, yet educated and experienced opinion, hip hinging correctly makes your back invincible – but done incorrectly and you are one bad rep away from disaster. This course will definitely help you to hip hinge correctly and to understand more about what is actually going on during hip hinge exercises.
