First off I’m a huge admirer of Eric Leija. I’m not sure if he is the originator of kettlebell flows, but it was this workout that introduced me to them. It’s a workout that I still do regularly to this day and has me feeling satisfied but exhausted at the end. Accumulating nearly 500K followers on Instagram, he’s established himself as one of the premier trainers among the kettlebell community.

There is a lot of discussion on back pain caused by kettlebell exercises due to improper technique. It’s unfair really, as such pain comes from mistakes made and not from the nature of the exercises.
