Improve Your Kettlebell Clean – 3 Simple Tips
1 – Think around getting your hand around the ‘bell
Most folks clean the KB up, but when it comes around their hand, it just kind of flops over the top and ends up smacking them in the wrist.
If you can think about getting your hand around the kettlebell instead, it will help you slip your hand around and finish in a nice strong position at the top.
2 – Think about zipping up a jacket
The motion your hand should be making is not unlike zipping up a jacket. Think about this next time you do the exercise, and it will help you keep your hand in the proper position.
3 – Land in the proper rack position
When the kettlebell is racked at the shoulder, this is called the rack position. You should 1) be able to touch your thumb to your collar bone 2) have the KB resting on your upper arm 3) also have the KB resting on your forearm when in the rack.
Give those tips a try at your next KB clean workout –
And see if they help.
