Kettlebell Fundamentals ■ Nr.1 Video For Every Beginner To Watch

This is the number one kettlebell video that anyone even dreaming about picking up a kettlebell needs to see first!

This video will help prevent so many issues and will lay a good solid foundation for the dead clean and hand insertion, which in turn is the foundation for a proper and injury free shoulder press and so on.


There are several crucial things to take away from this video:

  • deadlifting (hip hinge or squat style)
  • proper alignment
  • using the legs to lift
  • hand insertion
  • racking


Why is it so important?

Everyone working with kettlebells will be lifting a kettlebell and racking it, and literally, everything you do as a kettlebell training beginner will build upon this, if you get it wrong, it’s going to take a while to unlearn and get it right.
