Kettlebell Exercise Technique Tip – Your Feet…?

Kettlebell Exercise Technique Tip – Your Feet…?

I recently had the great pleasure to work with Mike on his technique via a one-on-one Zoom call.

We ran through his Swing, finding the perfect position for him.

Then the Clean, and dialed in his start position, then his kettlebell start position.

(There are 4 different kettlebell starting “set ups” – the position the kettlebells start in on the floor relative to your body.)

Then we worked on his Military Press – both single and double.

I have a whole sequence I run folks through, and there generally a lot of “a-ha” moments.

I thought I’d pass Mike’s biggest “a-ha” moment on to you to see if it made your Press feel stronger,

Here it is:

“Before you Press, grip the ground with your feet. Imagine you have roots growing out of them, like a tree, then Press.”

Test it out and see if you find it helpful.

Maybe you will, maybe you won’t.

We all have different strengths and weaknesses when it comes to the kettlebell lifts.

That’s why I recommend people do themselves a favor and get their technique dialed in from the start as opposed to after they hurt themselves.

For single kettlebell technique, use this.

For double kettlebell technique, which is built on top of the single, this has stood the test of time.

Hope this helps.

Stay Strong,
