G'days Ghouls and Gals
I've recently purchased a kettlebell for cardio and entertainment purposes and have been messing around doing a few exercises. I've got the hang of the swing, it's a good fun exercise and definitely gets the heart-rate going. The snatch is also pretty good and I feel my form is ok on that (I will probably post some videos soon-ish). I've not yet tried anything other then these exercises (e.g. Turkish Get-Ups or Windmills) as I don't really know where to get advice or instructional videos on form.
My issue is with the clean. Whenever i pull it up I seem to keep banging on the top of my forearm (close to my wrist). In which way can you position your arm so that this doesn't happen? I've tried a few different ways but nothing is seeming to help and to be honest I'm not too keen to just keep practicing them lest I somehow damage a nerve or something.
So who can help me out? Also does anyone know a good site with instructional videos for Kettlebell work? I can't really afford to get a Pavel book at the moment.
Spanks for all advice and suggestions offered .
Also, here is a little kettlebell routine I came up with to act as a bit of cardio. I'm just doing this till i feel I would last past the first minute of Tabata then i'm straight into that ;-).
20 Double handed swings
10 One handed swings (either arm)
10 Cleans & Jerks (either arm)
20 Front Squats
10 Snatches (either arm)
20 Figure 8's**
5 Shoulder Press (either arm)
10 Front Squats
** (I pass the KB through my legs in a figure 8 path. Seems to really work core and leg muscles... seems to. If anyone disagrees or thinks this could be dangerous please say so
