Happy Birthday Josh L

The Russian swing starts just below the groin and is swung to chest or at most, eye level.  The movement is short, brisk and compact.  The American swing begins level to the knees and moves upward to full arm extension over the head.  Its motion is longer and smoother than its Russian counterpart.  The height of the arc of the American swing may be twice that of the Russian.

The subtler difference is the bend of the knees.  The Russian style looks similar to a stiff-legged deadlift.  Most of the movement is in the hips and the knees bend slightly, almost as an afterthought.  The American swing is more like a squat as the knees bend to a much greater degree.  Each method requires a different body alignment for correct performance.
