Kettlebell Snatches

I highly recommend anyone who has access to a KB start doing these. Great full body exercise, can be done heavy enough to build strength and are infinitely scaleable. Good cardio workout too. There area bunch of videos of this one dude on youtube that all he does is train with KBs and he has some really impressive feats of stregth and conditioning when he does step outside of his KB stuff.

My video from yesterday playing with the 88lber. First time getting 10 unbroken with each arm:

I do like them a lot but they kill the skin on my hands. I try to snatch them up so they're almost weightless and off my hands during the turn though.

When does it kill the skin? On the pull or when you are putting it back down?

Yeah, that's the worst part. I've been trying to twist it down from the top, makes it a little easier. Also, popping if off the wrist so the bell spins while it is weightless and then gripping it once its in position makes it easier too. You just dont want the bell spinning when you're holding it.

Feels great. No pain whatsoever. In fact, this was one of the only heavier things I could do when my back was bothering me after I tweaking it moving.

Give it a try

A good friends brother in law recently did half an iron man triathlon, all he did was kettlebell workouts as training for it and he did really well.

You transition really high. Does that make the KB hit your forearm easier at the top? I transition starting at the clavicle and am fully transitioned before I am above my head.

Do you mean KBs were all his weight training (aside from cardio) or that KBs are ALL he did, period?

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Might be a stupid question, but whats the point of "transitioning"? Why not just "swing" the kettlebell up until its practically weightless, and let it go back down? Why does it have to flip and touch your forearm?

I'd like to give these a try sometime. Looks like you use a lot of power from your hips to thrust it up, right?

If you leave it facing forward, the weight will be against your thumb (not ideal.) It needs to be against your four fingers and thus will hit your forearm.

If you just swing it...that's an overhead KB swing. Different thing.

I think it has to do with the Russian definition of being a real man.

Different exercise. You could do swings, but its a different movement. I do a lot of those as well but just something about this that I really like. I do KB clean and jerks as well.

I find KBs to be a lot more comfortable and the movement is a lot different with the swingability of the KB and how it flips over at the top. Nothing wrong with a DB though, especially when its not practical to spend hundreds of dollars on different weight KBs when you have DBs at your disposal.

My Ride: a franken-e46 325i
i gave this a try at the gym this morning
surprisingly, it doesn't hurt when the KB "swings over" at the top and hits the forearm
it was a good workout



oh but what DOES hurt ... are the callouses on my hands
as the KB handle rotates in my hand... really hurts
are you using chalk on your hand when you do this?
