5 Minute Kettlebell Snatch Test
Kettlebell Snatch Test (5 minutes)
Set your stance, Feet wider than hip width apart and heels grounded. Grip hold of the kettlebell with one hand. Hinge your chest over at the hips and slightly bend at the knees.Ensure your abs are engaged then “hip snap” forward and drive the kettlebell up into a swing; as the kettlebell comes up to chest height, you must pull your elbow back and lift the kettlebell to shoulder height then “punch” your fist above your head until the kettlebell is locked out. From this position you will swing the kettlebell down from the top to between your legs before performing your next repetition of this exercise.
