Why the Kettlebell High Pull?

The Kettlebell High Pull can be a great alternative to the Kettlebell Snatch. This is a great shoulder exercise, yet has all the benefits of the kettlebell swing. This will strengthen your entire backside without a doubt.

Exercise Steps

Step 1: Place a kettlebell about a foot in front of you.

Step 2: With a straight back, grab the handle, swing the kettlebell back and swing it forward forcefully.

Step 3: At the top of the motion, quickly pull the kettlebell back keeping it horizontal to the ground. Push the kettlebell handle back into the down swing quickly and repeat.

Tips & Safety: Maintain a tight core throughout the duration of the exercise. Perform this exercise as you would a traditional swing. Explode through the hips to bring the kettlebell up vs. lifting it with your shoulders.
