“Fling” the Kettlebell – 008 – Kettlebell Sport Science

Hey there Kettlebellers!

For this week’s episode, you will be making physics your best friend.  Sorry Nick.

In the video below, you will learn how to best use momentum to propel (or “fling”) the kettlebell into the rack for a clean, or overhead in a snatch.

There are two things to be aware of:

  1. Rocking motion
  2. Hip drive / thrust

Without further ado, find out what the heck I used that thing for.
