In this post, we’re going to visit the kettlebell snatch yet again.
The focus of this lesson is on the “tuggy tug”. Some may refer to this technique as a high pull. For the clean, Dan John calls this technique a “quiet elbow.” I like “tuggy tug”. To each his own.
I discussed previously that in order to develop a skill one must first learn operate in accordance to a particular set of rules. After all, a skill is nothing more than a habit of operation.
The rule we are focusing on today has to do with the trajectory of the bell, or “taming the arc”, as it is often referred to.
We ought to keep the bell in tight. Our snatch ought to look elegant, stylish, and dare I say, haughty? It not ought to look disjointed, clunky, or sloppy.
You’ll know when you got it, because a smooth kettlebell snatch feels almost as good as knocking the door shut on a Mercedez Benz.
