Section I: Kettlebell Exercises

One-arm Kettlebell Clean



Exercise Description

Place a kettlebell between your feet. As you bend down to grab the kettlebell, push your butt back and keep your eyes looking forward. Bring the kettlebell straight up using body momentum (don't even think about trying to curl it). Drive through with the hips and raise the kettlebell to your shoulder.


Performance Tips

• Crush-grip the kettlebell in the starting position.

• Open your hand as the bell passes your waist and get your hand around the kettlebell.

• Breathe in forcefully as you clean the kettlebell and out as you lower the kettlebell.

• Contract your midsection and glutes at the top position to brace for the weight.


Bottoms-up Clean From The Hang Position



Exercise Description

Initiate the exercise by standing upright with a kettlebell in one hand. Swing the kettlebell back forcefully and then reverse the motion forcefully. Crush the kettlebell handle as hard as possible and raise the kettlebell to your shoulder.


Performance Tips

• Keep a fairly loose grip when you swing the kettlebell back

• Crush the handle as hard as possible as you clean the kettlebell to your shoulder.

• Flex your bicep and shoulder as hard as possible in the top position

• Breathe in as you clean the kettlebell to your shoulder and breathe out as you lower the kettlebell to the starting position.


Two-arm Kettlebell Clean



Exercise Description

Place two kettlebells between your feet. To get in the starting position, push your butt back and look straight ahead. Raise the kettlebells straight up as fast as possible and take the kettlebells to your shoulders. Lower the kettlebells back to the floor and repeat.


Performance Tips

• Breathe in as you clean the kettlebells to your shoulders.

• Drive through forcefully with your hips

• Get your hands around the kettlebells, rather than letting the kettlebells flip around and bang up your wrists.

• Flex your stomach and glutes at the top of the clean to brace for the kettlebells.

• Avoid rounding your back at all times.


Alternating Kettlebell Clean



Exercise Description

Place two kettlebells between your feet. To get in the starting position, push your butt back and look straight ahead. Clean one kettlebell to your shoulder and hold on to the other kettlebell. Take the cleaned kettlebell back to the floor and then clean the other kettlebell.


Performance Tips

• Make sure to start each repetition with both kettlebells on the floor.

• As you clean one kettlebell, let the other kettlebell hang in the opposite arm. Do not shrug the kettlebell or bend your elbow.

• Breathe in as you clean one kettlebell and out as you take one kettlebell back to the floor.


One-arm Kettlebell Military Press To The Side

Clean a kettlebell to your shoulder. Look at the kettlebell and press it up and out until it is locked out overhead. Lower the kettlebell back to your shoulder under control and repeat.


Performance Tips

• Try holding your breath as you press the weight (Caution: Make sure to clear this with your doctor if you have high blood pressure or any heart problems).

• Look at the kettlebell as you press and lower it.

• Crush the kettlebell handle as hard as possible for increased strength.
