The Kettlebell High Pull
The Kettlebell High Pull is a nice progression to the Kettlebell Snatch. Before attempting this ensure that you have had instruction from a qualified kettlebell instructor.
Like the swing, grasp the kettlebell with one hand and toss it backwards between your legs slightly. Then quiclkly on a partial exhalation drive through your hips, push into the ground and pull the kettlebell up an imaginary wall in front of you. Imagine that wall is less than arms length away form you and you don't want to hit it. At the top of the high pull the kettlebell will be at least head high and your active elbow will be above your shoulder height. Ensure the kettlebell handle stays level with your forearm at the top. Let the kettlebell swing back down between your legs, like in the swing, then repeat for repetitions.
