The kettlebell clean is a power exercise that swings the kettlebell to the rack position & builds both strength and coordination.
Level 1 Single Arm Clean
With the thumb slightly turned in toward the body, swing the kettlebell back between the legs. As you begin to swing out pull the kettlebell up the midline of the body. Allow the bell to rotate in your hand so that it turns around the wrist and ends in a racked position.
Level 2 Double Arm Clean:
Keep both thumbs turned out on the preliminary back swing. Once racked keep both elbows close to the ribs and both knuckles underneath the chin.
