***ARE YOU PERFORMING KETTLEBELL CLEANS CORRECTLY?!***
Kettlebell cleans are one of the trickiest skills to master of the Deep Six (Squat, Press, Swing, Clean, Snatch, and Turkish Get-Up). There is such a blend of tension and relaxation that constantly varies from moment to moment, and it really just requires a ton of practice to fine-tune the precision necessary to successfully complete the movement. That being said, here are some quick details that @achievefitnessboston owner @jasonlpak demonstrates in this video that you don’t want to overlook:
1️⃣Try not to “cast” the bell. You want to try to keep the bell in as close as possible.
2️⃣”Taming the arc” is another phrase to think about in order to keep the movement as smooth as possible. The more distance the bell travels out in front of you; the less efficient you’re being.
3️⃣If the bell is landing in the rack position with a lot of impact and causing your wrists to bruise, you are more than likely not taming the arc, and casting the bell instead.
If any of this is happening, don’t sweat it! Just spend some time performing some mindful practice, or seek out assistance from a @strongfirst certified instructor in your area.
