Why You Should Do Kettlebell Lockouts Properly

The Kettlebell Lockout is a common position in kettlebell training and it is done incorrectly by many people. The problem is that most people lack the flexibility necessary to perform a kettlebell lockout without extending their arms out of the shoulder socket. When this happens, your arm is at risk because it isn’t being stabilized and protected by the muscles found around the shoulder girdle. Use these kettlebell lockout tips to avoid injury.
