    Loving the exercise library…so user friendly!! Would I get the same effect doing this exercise with a dumbell? I just haven’t bought myself & my husband kettle bells yet.

      Hi 🙂 thank you for the feedback. Unfortunately you won’t get the same effect doing the swing with a dumbbell because the center of gravity is in the palm of your hand which means that you’ll be pulling the dumbbell up with your arms rather than swinging. The purpose of the KB swing is to use the power of your hips without using your arms too much. You should be just holding on to the weight and using your hips and core to do the swing. You can get more similar results with dummbell deadlifts but you won’t get the same cardio benefits and you would have to use a really heavy dumbbells to even get close to the results you’d get with 24-26lb KB swing.

    Hi Zuza but If I use 12kg dumbbel instead KB because I do not have so heavy KB then will be similar effect to the KB swing for example 10kg? Or maybe is better to use exactly 10kg KB than 12 kg dumbbel?
