Kettlebell Two Arm Swing Catch

Instructions

Preparation

Begin as you would when performing Kettlebell Two Arm Swing with both hands grasping kettlebell handle with over hand grip.

Execution 1

Quickly pull kettlebell forward from under body. Continue to swing kettlebell up by raising upper body upright and extending legs. As kettlebell rises vertically in front of chest, pull kettlebell inward slightly and quickly release grip. Immediately rotate wrists while pointing bent elbows downward. As kettlebell begins to fall back down, grasp kettlebell handle with both hands with under hand grip. Swing kettlebell back down. Bend over and straighten arms before kettlebell swings between legs.

Execution 2

Again pull kettlebell forward from under body and swing kettlebell up by raising upper body upright and extending legs. As kettlebell rises vertically in front of body, pull kettlebell inward slightly, quickly release grip, and grasp with overhand grip. Continue to swing kettlebell downward and upward switching between over and underhand grips.

Comments

Exercise emphasizes hand-eye coordination. A less challenging movement can be practiced by switching grips of only one hand at a time so at least one hand grips kettlebell at all times. For example, grip would transfer from overhand, to mixed, to underhand, to mixed, and back to overhand. See Two Arm Swing Start and Finish. Also see Start and Finish with Jump.
