The single kettlebell clean can be a challenge to learn.
I speak from experience – for me, it was one of the tricker KB moves to really get down.
The “towel-under-the-arm” drill that you’ll see in today’s video has worked wonders though when it has come to eliminating the typical thump on the wrist and forearm in the catch:
The drill starts from the rack position.
Grab a partner, and have them put a small towel between your upper arm and your torso.
Then, perform a few reps of the clean, keeping the arm “pinned” to the body …
… don’t let the towel fall out!
It’s a simple, but highly effective drill that will help you keep the KB in the correct “groove”, teach you how to use your hips, and more.
Watch the video, give it a try today 🙂
