Good sleep, good wakeup. Back has been sore because of my last kbell hiit. I did an internet search on kettlebell form and ran into this link - Learning the Kettlebell Swing From the Ground Up

They focused on one guy who was having back issues - according to the author of the post, if you’ve got this happening to you you are doing it wrong.

After watching the video I’ve determined that I’m bending outwards instead of forwards, and I’m definitely loading onto my lower back instead of using my waist. This soreness (and the cold weather) has messed up my workouts, cause I usually do swings when I’m back home in Texas. This is disappointing because I really have, looking at my body, made quite a great deal of progress that I don’t want to lose while I’m in the states. 

I would like to try Crossfit, but having this back issue really frightens me even more - so I’m going to try to work out my form issues while working on the kinks in my back that bad form has caused before thinking about trying something new.
