In this Video tutorial Coach Sergei Karaliou will take you through learning progressions of Kettlebell High Pull.
Although Kettlebell High Pull is not considered to be one of the main Kettlebell Lifts – but definitely worth implementing into you current routine. It will keep the things fresh and will allow you to feel ballistics with different flavor.
We recommend this exercise if you have problems in overhead lockout position and can’t afford to bring kettelbells above the head due to your current limitations. Work your kinks with shoulder, neck and elbow if you have any and then build your Get Up and Press before attempting ballistics into overhead (Snatch).
It’s a great way to transition to Kettlebell Snatch from Swing – if you have any troubles with mastering Kettlebell Snatch put some time into Kettlebell High Pulls and discover your Snatch at better level.
Kettlebell High Pull is a ballistic one so learning and mastering Swing is the MUST! Please make sure that you own the Center Of Kettlebell World)
Implement it into your program and inject into your mid-upper back more tone and stability! Don’t be surprised that you feel like somebody but a bulletproof vest on your mid-upper back.
Here is a simple implementation of this exercise:
- Put the timer for 15 min
- Use one or pair of Kettlebells that you can swing for 12-14 repetitions
- Perform A1 Swings X 7 reps + A2 High Pulls X7 reps
- Rest as needed to do the step #3
- Track the number of sets accomplished
- Repeat it in 2-4 days trying to improve your number of sets
- Practice it for 6 sessions – then switch the parameters
Enjoy and Be Well!
