10 reps each side

Okay, next we move on to the kettlebell snatch. Hugely cardiovascular exercise. Works practically every muscle in the body, and we’re carrying on from that swing into high pull and then finally into snatch. And it actually naturally moves up the body as you perform this exercise.
So, first we went swing to here, then we went swing and high pull, and now we’re going swing and then we’re just going to push the hand through to the top of the snatch. Then we throw the kettlebell forward and drop the weight like you do in a regular single-handed swing, and then we drive the bell back up with our hips, pull and push again.
Let me give you a demo from the side so you can see what it looks like. So, weight on the heels, load those glutes and hamstrings; nice flat back, pull the kettlebell back, pull, and push. Nice straight wrist at the top, throw the kettlebell over, absorb, pull, and push. Pull and push. Pull and push.
It’s really important, when you’re coming up for that kettlebell snatch, that you make sure you pull and push the hand through. If you keep the arm straight as it’s coming up, the kettlebell is just going to flop over and bang you on the wrist. So, remember, pull, push, nice straight wrist at the top.
That’s the kettlebell snatch. Very high energy. So, we’re now on the third exercise of these dynamic swing, high pull, snatch. You’re going to perform 10 repetitions on each side.
