While the kettlebell swing remains one of my favorite power exercises for mountain biking, the kettlebell snatch is right up there as well. In fact, since you have to power it all the way up over your head it actually takes more power to perform a KB snatch when compared to a KB swing using the same weight.
This overhead catch position is also great for building strong, stable shoulders as well, giving you a better overall body workout in the process. However, the KB snatch isn’t just a big swing – it requires a specific 3 part upper body technique to execute properly.
In this video I show you how to perform a proper KB snatch using that 3 part technique. I also share some coaching cues and tips to help you get even more out of this great exercise.
