Welcome to the Kettlebell snatch for sports.
This is one of the most important reasons that I promote and train with kettlebells for athletes to regular people.
Olympic lifting drastically misses out on transverse plane (rotational) adaptation and functional absorption.
Contact sports aren’t only based on how hard you can hit.
It is imperative that you learn what your body needs to do to absorb and redirect forces to keep your self from being injured.
The Kettlebell Snatch is a wonderful exercise.
With the kettlebell snatch you can learn to….
- Balance yourself unilaterally
- Gain rotational stability strength and power
- Safely train the eccentric and transitional portions of the lift rep after rep.
Here is a video of the second set of 20 rep one arm kettlebell snatch with 106 lb.
(Also no hands were harmed during this set…..)
This is no place to start but I highly recommend using the kettlebell snatch as a beneficial implement to your training for life program.
Whatever life that may be, please consult an experienced and RESPONSIBLE kettlebell trainer.
(Even some of the best lifting coaches out there are terrible kettlebell teachers due to lack of experience and movement patterns)
No matter what you do we would be happy to teach you to incorporate the kettlebell snatch into your lifting.
The only drawback is that it will not happen in one day. There are many specific movement that need to be taught before you can safely snatch a kettlebell without the possibility of hurting your shoulder, elbow or wrist.
We are currently offering programs to build up your kettlebell snatchability.

Dont miss out any longer on the responsive training that kettlebells can provide you.
