The Kettlebell Rack Squat is performed in a similar way to the Kettlebell Goblet Squat. The difference between the two exercises lies in the position of the kettlebell and the loading on the body. During a Kettlebell Goblet Squat, the kettlebell is held in the middle of the body close to the chest.
In a Kettlebell Rack Squat the kettlebell is held in a rack position on the lower forearm to the side of the body. When you hold a kettlebell in a rack position to one side, there is a feeling of being lopsided with your balance. This type of unilateral training forces you to engage your core, centre your body and squat with proper technique.
