How often should I practice these hip hinge exercises to see improvement?

To see consistent improvement in your hip hinge technique for kettlebell swings, I recommend the following practice frequency:

1-2 Times per Week:

  • Incorporate specific hip hinge drills like the ones mentioned (bodyweight hinges, box squats, deadlifts, etc.) into your routine 1-2 times per week.

Perform these drills as a dedicated warm-up or as part of your strength training session. Aim for 2-3 sets of 5-10 reps of each exercise.


  • In addition to the dedicated hip hinge practice, try to incorporate hip hinging movements into your daily activities.

This could include things like:

  • Practicing hip hinges while getting dressed or brushing your teeth
  • Performing a few reps of bodyweight hinges throughout the day
  • Focusing on the hip hinge pattern when picking things up off the floor

The more you can ingrain the hip hinge movement pattern into your daily life, the more natural and automatic it will become.

Be Patient and Consistent:

  • Improving hip mobility and mastering the hip hinge takes time and consistent practice.

Don't get discouraged if you don't see immediate results. Stick with the program for at least 4-6 weeks, and you should start to notice significant improvements in your hip hinge mechanics.

The key is to make the hip hinge a regular part of your routine, both in dedicated training sessions and throughout your day-to-day activities. With consistent practice, this foundational movement will become second nature.
