Kettlebell Double Snatch Instructions

  1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and hold a kettlebell in each hand at your sides.
  2. Bend your knees slightly and hinge forward at the hips, keeping your back straight and your core engaged.
  3. Swing the kettlebells back between your legs, then explosively drive your hips forward and use the momentum to lift the kettlebells up to shoulder height.
  4. As the kettlebells reach shoulder height, rotate your wrists and press them overhead, locking out your arms at the top of the movement.
  5. Lower the kettlebells back down to shoulder height, then swing them back between your legs and repeat the movement for the desired number of reps.
  6. Remember to keep your core engaged throughout the exercise and to use your hips to generate power, rather than relying on your arms.
