The Kettlebell Snatch is one of the trickiest kettlebell exercises to learn …
Check out this quick video for a technique drill that’ll help improve your form and prevent the dreaded ‘forearm slap’:
To review, you’ll do:
- 3 One Arm Swings
- 3 Low Pulls
- 3 High Pulls
- 3 Snatches
The idea is to get the kettlebell to ‘float’ for a second at the top of the High Pull movement, and then to get the hand around the ‘bell – vs. just letting the KB come over the top of your hand and smack you on the wrist. Give this drill a try and see if it improves your form in the Kettlebell Snatch – and keep training hard!!
