I’ve been practicing with Kettlebells at the gym recently to mix up my routine a little, but I ran into a little problem: The Snatch. That is one tricky little move!
Here’s how to do it:
Start with a kettlebell between your feet, with your knees bent. Pull the kettlebell up and then raise over your head. At the top the kettlebell will naturally flip to the other side of your forearm.
This exercise targets your shoulders, chest and back and is considered a more advanced move. Caution! When that bell flops over it can really hurt your arm, which is why I wear my KettleGuards. They are kind of like shin guards but you wear them on your wrists. (You can find out more here: KettleGuard.)
Of course, a video is worth a thousand words, so here’s a clip of Master of Sport, Jessica DiBiase, doing the Snatch.
What’s your favorite Kettlebell move?
