Individual exercise information is available by clicking the links above, and more detailed information specified for the Kettlebell Squat can be found below.

There are many kettlebell squat variations, some vary in stance, and others vary in grip or location of the arm. There are racked squats, overhead squats, a mix between the two, single or double kettlebell, frontal holds, and unilateral squats like the pistol squat.


The fastest squat variation is the squat thruster, however, it does depend on how much load is added. The slowest squat variation is the double kettlebell racked squat with heavy weight. As with any exercise variation, the squat first needs to be mastered at the absolute slowest pace. Building speed upon a bad squat will result in knee, hip, and even ankle issues. Issues in the lower body can travel to the upper body (spine).
