One of the most overlooked techniques of training with KBs is how to properly rack a kettlebell.
The rack is where the KB ends up after a clean. It’s the start of overhead pressing, various kettlebell squatting variations, and more.
Check out the three simple tips to get it right!
3 Tips to Properly Rack a Kettlebell
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.
