No need to look at the kettlebell, maintain good form and alignment, keep your sight ahead, not down.
Full racking position
End up in full racking position, even if your next rep is another dead clean, complete the full movement and don’t get sloppy.
Don’t let the bell just crash on the floor, control the descent and gently put the kettlebell back dead on the ground.
The pulling speed needs to increase, accelerate and generate enough power to make the weight float.
Drop + pull-out
Let the kettlebell drop back down, pull the hand back out, transition back into hook grip.
Hip slow; shoulders high
This is not a hip hinge, it’s a squat, drop you hips low and keep your shoulders high.
Float, open + insert
Make the weight float, i.e. get it to the point where it’s weightless, then open the hand, let the bell come around, and insert the hand into the window.
Drop + pull back
While the bell drops, pull the elbow back, keeping it where it is means that the bell will move away from the body, you want a direct path back down.
Pull with legs, not with the elbow flexors, this means you keep the elbow extended for as long as is required to generate the right amount of power with the legs.
