Hey! It’s Mike Whitfield with Kettlebell Finishers, and we are back again with another awesome finisher with my man, Chris Lopez. Chris will do the work this time, and I will attempt to coach him through it.
Let’s go and get into position! As Chris mentioned in the other videos, you want a root position with your abs braced. This is called the Manhattan Beach Finisher.
We’ll start with a snatch using the 2010 method. Snatch for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds. Start in an upright standing position with your legs wider than shoulder-width apart. Hold the kettlebell handle in one hand. Hinge from your hips to bend your upper body forward as you swing the kettlebell through your legs. Thrust your hips forward as you swing the kettlebell over your head. At the top position, the kettlebell handle will flip in your hand so that the kettlebell ball rests on your forearm. Lower your arm to the starting position and repeat the movement. The Snatch is a great basic kettlebell exercise.
2. Goblet Squat
Perform 20 seconds of the Goblet Squat, then rest for 10 seconds. Begin in an upright standing position with your feet shoulder-width apart. Hold the kettlebell with both hands at chest height. Bend your knees and hinge from your hips to lower your seat into a squat position. Try to squat as deeply as possible and keep the kettlebell locked close to your chest. Keep your elbows glued to your sides. Raise back up to a standing position and repeat the movement.
This is going to shred your abs. It is a unique exercise, but it will force your core to work hard. This is very basic but very awesome. Begin standing upright, holding the kettlebell in front of your body at chest height. Engage your core and lift the kettlebell overhead, slowly rotating the kettlebell around your head in a circular motion. Lower the kettlebell to the starting position and repeat the movement, rotating in the opposite direction. Return to the starting position and repeat the movement. Again, we’re going to do the exercise for 20 seconds and then rest for 10 seconds.
4. Clean and Press
Clean and Press
Now move on the clean and press, using the same method of 20 seconds of exercise and 10 seconds of rest. Focus on maintaining good hard abs and proper breathing. Again, 20 seconds on and 10 seconds rest. Start in an upright standing position with your legs wider than shoulder-width apart. Hold the kettlebell handle in one hand. Hinge from your hips to bend your upper body forward as you swing the kettlebell through your legs. Thrust your hips forward as you swing the kettlebell and bend your arm to bring the kettlebell to shoulder height. Pause briefly, then push the kettlebell overhead. Reverse the exercise to return to the starting position and repeat the movement.
Make sure your feet are grounded doing the hitch and hinge. Start in an upright standing position with your legs wider than shoulder-width apart. Hold the kettlebell handle in both hands. Hinge from your hips to bend your upper body forward as you swing the kettlebell through your legs. Thrust your hips forward as you swing the kettlebell up to chest height. Repeat the movement. Again, do the exercise for 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off.
The kettlebell is a versatile piece of equipment that improves core strength. Be sure to try these exercises, and let us know what you think. We’re confident you’ll want to incorporate them into your next workout.
