[new vid] How to Avoid Bruised Wrists from Kettlebell Training

Do you get bruised wrists from your kettlebell workouts?

Today, I’m going to show you how to fix it!

One of the common exercises this happens with is the kettlebell clean. Two tips that are going to help:

1 – “Tame the Arc”

When the KB comes down, we want the “arc” that the ‘bell takes to be close to the body. If the kettlebell comes too far away from your body during the move, and then comes up and slams you in the arm as it flips around, you’re going to end up with bruised wrists. Instead, keep your elbow tight to the frame as you do your cleans.

2 – Lose the “Death Grip”

Another thing people do – in an effort to keep the KB from coming around and slamming the wrist – is to squeeze the KB really hard as it flips around the hand. Instead, what you want to think about is taking a loose grip, and then “punching” the hand through as it comes around the wrist.
