-Now swing the kettlebell upward by forcefully extending your hips and knees. Your arms should stay straight and relaxed during this motion.

-After having swung the kettlebell all the way up, allow it to fall down again, but now controlling its  motion by using only one arm.

Kettlebell Swings to Burn 100 Calories

If we use the rule of thumb that 1 minute of kettlebell swings burns about 20 calories, then you would need to swing the bells for 5 minutes straight to burn 100 calories. However, most people take breaks in between sets so it may take 10 or 15 minutes to complete 100 kettlebell swings. It all depends on your fitness level and how many Kettlebell Swing sets you do.
