MOVEMENT TIP: The Kettlebell Snatch

MOVEMENT TIP: The Kettlebell Snatch

The Kettlebell Snatch, as demonstrated here by Lifestyle Health Clubs Seminar Staff member James Hobart, is a great single arm exercise for developing all the similar strength and movement technique as the barbell Snatch, but with a few extra benefits:
– strengthens the stabiliser muscles in the shoulders
– addresses any left-right imbalances that may compensate for each other with barbell work
– works the core as it works against the tendency for the body to rotate with single arm work

So don’t see the kettlebell version of the Snatch as the easy option!

Points Of Performance

  • Deadlift kettlebell to the hip
  • Knees flex slightly, while hips push back
  • Lumbar curve maintained
  • Extend hips and legs
  • Heels down until hips and legs extend
  • Shoulder shrugs, followed by a pull under with the arms
  • Arms extend overhead, catching kettlebell on wrist
  • Complete at full hip, knee and arm extension
