Scaling: If you don’t have the mobility to reach your hand to the floor, it’s best to use weight plates on the floor to raise the floor up to your level.

Expert Tip: Make sure you maintain control of the kettle on the way up and down, maintaining a tight core.  This exercise is frequently down slowly and deliberately as a hamstring isolation exercise.

Caution:  This isn’t an exercise designed to stretch the hamstring… there are better exercises for that.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
