Thoughts and discussion on kettlebell training, strength and conditioning, Olympic lifting, fat loss, getting healthy and fit, NMT, core training, Pilates, mobility and anything else that goes with the above.
This movement above is what we refer to as the FFI bent elbow kettlebell swing. This hardstyle movement can bridge the gap from the kettlebell swing to the snatch.
It teaches the lifter the proper line of movement for the kettlebell on the up phase of the snatch. So what we are looking for is an explosive hip pop coupled with a short lever (arm) pull close to the body.
Drill these bent arm swings or alternate them with snatches to pefect your FFI hardstyle kettlebell snatch.
