When you are training with kettlebells, a lot of the moves require that you start from what we call a rack position.
Here are three tips to make sure you’re doing it right:
1 – WRIST STRAIGHT
Common mistake is to hold the KB with a bent wrist.
It’s weaker and puts added stress.
Keep it straight.
2 – HAND BELOW THE CHIN
Your hand should be below chin level.
You should also be able to touch your thumb to your collar bone.
3 – FOREARM VERTICAL
The forearm should be straight up and down when the KB is racked.
If I’m going to press the KB or whatever else, this gives me the best leverage and strength to be able to do that.
