Are you trying to find out how to snatch heavy kettlebells?

This video gives you several tips on how to do it.

In this video, I snatch a 60kg, or 132lb, kettlebell, so I know what I’m talking about. Several of the points found here are:

  • It is always good to work with heavier kettlebells than whatever your goal weight may be. If you’re trying to perform the 5 minute snatch test with the 24kg, then working with a 32kg will benefit you tremendously.
  • The dead stop kettlebell snatch can be used to train your body for more explosiveness. Depending on where you start the kettlebell can make this harder or easier.
  • As a unilateral exercise you need to torque your body around the straight flight path of the kettlebell. This is important to realize with a heavy kettlebell, versus what you might do with something much lighter.
