Intro to the Kettlebell Clean

Before you learn the kettlebell clean, you should be familiar with the kettlebell deadlift and one arm swing!

The clean seems to be a little more challenging than the snatch to learn (IMO and likely due to turning the dial down a bit from a swing), but I still always prefer students know how to swing, then clean and then snatch.

Here are a few videos that serve as a quick intro and should be helpful if you are working on or are new to the clean!

I'd love to know what was helpful! And, if you'd like to learn more I have several workshops this year where we will discuss the clean in detail. Get more info here.
