Hello everyone, a couple of months ago I uploaded a video of me doing swings with a 32 kG. I got really good feedback from the community, even tho the video wasn’t the best quality.

Here is a better quality video of me doing swings with 36 kg bell. I’m wondering if some of you struggle with keeping straight arms throughout the swing, especially on the up swing. For some reason I can’t seem to keep my arms locked out. I know some of the Strong First leaders say it’s okay to have some bend in the elbow. Am I bending my elbows too much in this video?

I don’t have any injuries in my elbows but for whatever reason my arms naturally want to bend during the swings. During the one arm swing I am able to maintain a straight arm.

Hi @Sergio

The arms look OK to me. 2 things I would have you change are 1) keep your eyes on the horizon, and 2) bend your knees a bit more in the hinge. Try it and let us know how that feels. Swings look good and powerful!
