Teaching Points

  1. Initiate the movement with the swing.
  2. The elbows must remain tight to the body, think about holding a newspaper under your arm.
  3. When you initiate the clean your hands should stay close to the body and be on your midline, think about zipping up your coat.
  4. Let the bells move around the wrists and spear your hands through the ‘window’ of the bell.
  5. Brace and absorb the impact and keep the abs and glutes tight.
  6. Press the kettlebells up vertically, keep the forearms vertical and the wrists fixed throughout.
  7. Straighten the arms with the palm of the hands facing forwards.
  8. Stabilise the shoulders and contract the triceps so the arms are straight.
  9. Lower the kettlebells under control and pull them back into the ‘racked’ position.
