Bilateral Kettlebell Rack Position Box Squat
In the video above you will see osteopath Heath Williams performing a bilateral kettlebell rack position box squat. The anterior kettlebell hold places more load forward of the person and this works well for those looking to maintain a more upright trunk position. The kettlebell hold is also a great adaptation on the front hold rack position because it allows those with limitation in their upper limbs that prevents them from a front rack barbell position. The box squat (hip dominant squat pattern) aims to place more training load through the gluteals and hamstrings. The individual should aim for a vertical shin position and aim to prevent anterior movement of the knee where possible.
