Also, a lot of important exercises—such as the kettlebell swing, the traditional deadlift, bent over rows and many more—depend on this movement.

“Throughout my life I have attended many courses and workshops, most I walked away thinking to myself that if they just changed the wording slightly, presented things differently, and did not assume everyone would know what they were talking about, then a lot more people would have benefit from the information provided. I have learned from these experiences and vowed not to make the same mistake.” ~ Taco Fleur (Owner of Cavemantraining)
