The Kettlebell Side Clean is a nice variation to the standard kettlebell clean.

Although I prefer this movement with the clubbell, throwing them into a kettlebell workout adds variety to traditional workouts that tend to be more sagittal plane focused.

There are 4 movements you can train;

  • Right arm inside
  • Right arm outside
  • Left arm inside
  • Left arm outside

Or, you can combine the inside and outside into one exercise like I demonstrate in the video.

Regular kettlebells are better for this exercise than pro-grade kettlebells because they tend to be smaller and reduces the risk of hitting your legs on the swing.

Have fun with this movement.
