The Big 6 Kettlebell Movements
Kettlebells are a phenomenal training tool. Not only do they improve strength, power, endurance, and grip strength, certain movements can burn up to 22 kcal per minute!
This movement is the foundation for the clean and snatch. This hinging motion is responsible for the kettlebell butt lift!
The clean is the step between the swing and snatch. In this movement you are still suing the basic hinge motion from the swing, but are moving the weight to the rack portion.
The snatch is one of the highest calorie burning exercises with the possibility of burning 22 calories/minute. It is also a great way to get a weight overhead without pressing. It may look intimidating, but when you start with the swing a progress step by step, it becomes doable.
Turkish Get Up
This multistep exercise is amazing! It is probably one of the most technical kettlebell movements. During this exercise you take a weight from the ground to standing position and back down.
Learning how to press a kettlebell overhead is crucial for injury prevention. There are even tactics to help you get through sticking points.
A slow, controlled lower pushing your knees out and power exhale as you stand is the key to a great squat. The kettlebell is a great tool that will act as a counter balance as you lower yourself.
