Kettle Bell Clean
95% of beginners make the following mistakes when trying the kettle bell clean:
- They pull the kettle bell up with shoulder instead lifting through their hips
- They pull the kettle bell away from their body, which consumes more energy and increase risk of injury
- They don’t keep their tricep against their chest in the rack position creating shoulder injury risk.
- They allow their wrist to turn out creating a risk for hyper extension.
- They don’t understand concept of floating the kettle after the pull but before the catch.
The clean, whether a sand bag, barbbell, kettle, whatever is an incredibly powerful and useful move, but it takes practice.
