Kettlebell Series: Dead Snatch

Want more variation in your workout? Exercises performed with kettlebells are a great way to shock your muscles into growth while improving power and explosiveness from the ground up!

Check out VIM’s Kettlebell Video Series – Each week we’ll post a video demonstrating a new kettlebell move. Next move, KB Dead Snatch!

  1. Stand behind kettlebell with feet slightly wider apart than shoulder width. Bend over at hip with knees bent and back straight. Extend arm downward and grasp kettlebell handle with overhand grip.
  2. Lift kettlebell off of floor and pull forearm against inner thighs while keeping hips and knees bent with low back taut.
  3. Drive hips forward, torso upright, and knees straight so kettlebell is pushed forward and upward.
  4. As kettlebell begins to swing forward, vigorously raise shoulder above kettlebell. As kettlebell begins to swing up past the hips, pull kettlebell toward body slightly with elbow pointing outward. As kettlebell continues to rise slightly, decelerate rise of handle allowing kettlebell to rotate in hand into inverted position.
  5. Punch kettlebell upward in a overhead straight arm position with kettlebell positioned behind forearm.

Testimonials

“I very much enjoyed my membership with VIM. I have to say that the highlight of my experience was personal training and small group training with Valerie. She was extremely committed to my success and helped me establish an effective goal plan. I saw incredible progress with her (I lost 10 pounds) and I am stronger, happier and healthier. I also really enjoyed her style for leading small group and yoga classes. It is clear she is passionate about this work and dedicated to her clients.”-Ani
