First, let me start by saying, don’t do this at home, and it’s still a work in progress to make it smoother, but I felt it was time to demonstrate this beautiful complex that I’ve been working on. The movements are advanced and based on the Midgard Clean, which is a double kettlebell open palm clean and waiters clean with the additional exercises being the double kettlebell swing and snatch being tagged on.
Here’s what’s happening in the Midgard Complex, the kettlebells start dead on the ground, they are then pulled back into a backswing and cleaned with an open palm clean, the bells drop down into a backswing and then cleaned with a waiters clean, the bells are dropped into a backswing and kettlebell swing is performed, and finally, the complex ends with a half snatch from which the bells return back dead to the ground.
