Kettlebell combos are awesome, they are not only effective but they’re also entertaining. Enjoying your training is good as it keeps you motivated to keep moving! But… One does not just string exercises together and fling a kettlebell around like it’s nothing. Doing so is asking for trouble. Besides, you also want to be able to look good doing what you’re doing. Kettlebell combos require you to know the exercises and have followed the progressions for more complex moves. This kettlebell combo is:
- Hip hinge deadlift
- Hang clean
- Pass-through the leg switch clean
- Bent-over row
- Repeat on the other side

To learn some of the fundamentals that you need to know before you can perform these combos, check out the Kettlebell Training Fundamentals video or book. If you’ve been training for a while and feel you are still missing something, i.e. you are not 100% comfortable with moving the kettlebell, then check out our online kettlebell courses or online kettlebell certification. If you’re a trainer, get your CEUs with our accredited course.
Watching a video like this is cool, it gives you some idea of how to perform the combo, but it does not explain all the grip transitions, the stance transitions, and much more to stay safe and enjoy your kettlebell training. Check out the Kettlebell Exercise Encyclopedia if you want to dive deeper into many kettlebell exercises so you too can create and program your own kettlebell combos.
Some people think that it’s normal to train with kettlebells and experience discomfort. They believe that masking the pain or discomfort with wristbands or gloves is the solution. It’s not!
Kettlebell exercises or movements with a kettlebell require knowledge of grip, grip transitions, positioning of the body and limbs, stance adjustments, position and movement of the non-working arm, where to look, what the common mistakes are, and so much more than just throwing that weight around. Knowing why you’re doing something rather than just doing it is also super important. Without all this knowledge, you run the risk of injury or not being as efficient as you should be. The best place to gain all this knowledge is on Cavemantraining, in particular, the Caveman Inner Circle as it has over 160 full-length sessions that contain videos for warming up, cooling down, exercise technique, workout and warm-up explained, common mistakes, alternatives and progressions, plus much more. You get optional coaching included.
