Archive For: kettlebell clean

Volume Monday 6/1

15 minutes to build to a heavy 3-rep push press, then

EMOM for 20 min:
3 kb swing
3 kb clean
3 kb jerk

Ideally use two kettlebells but can scale to one bell if necessary. If OH position sucks then scale the jerks with push press either using the bells or not. If using bells for push press make sure they are spaced far enough apart so as to not smash fingers. NOT RECOMMENDED for bells smaller than 16kg. Encourage experienced athletes to go heavier than they think.
