Verbal Cueing vs. Constraint-Led Approach for Teaching the Kettlebell Swing
The purpose of this study is to determine which method is most effective at teaching the kettlebell swing: verbal cueing, physical constraints, or a combination of the two.
After being recruited for the study, participants will receive and complete the PAR-Q and be screened for inclusion based on prior level of experience and confidence with kettlebell swings prior to their visit. This will be conducted electronically via email.
The participants will then be asked to report to the University of Central Florida’s Musculoskeletal Laboratory for a single 30 minute session.
Participants will be asked to wear minimal athletic and tight fitting clothing to facilitate measurements. First participants will undergo informed consent and group randomization into a verbal coaching, constraints coaching or combined coaching group. Next, joint angle measurements through Ipad recording along withsubjective confidence rating of performing kettlebell swings will be taken and the participants will then undergo their respective intervention.
- 18-55 years of age
