Exercise Information

Kettlebell Clean

A kettlebell clean is an exercise that brings the kettlebell from a position below the hips into a racking position via an explosive fast and clean movement. The most common starting positions are dead from the ground and the racking position.

Several different movements can be used to move the weight but the most common ones are the hip hinge and the squat.

The kettlebell clean is an important aspect of kettlebell training as with almost every kettlebell exercise the weight needs to be brought into the racking position. But besides that, it's also a great exercise for cardio, strength, and power.

Programming

How the kettlebell clean is programmed partly determines the goal it reaches. For strength, program heavy and lower reps; for endurance, program light to medium and higher volume; for power, program between medium and heavy weight with low reps.

Endurance

The kettlebell clean is a great exercise to program for endurance combos as it allows the muscles to have a little break by moving the work to other muscle groups. In the clean and jerk, for example, the jerk requires a lot from the upper body in regards to racking and the jerk itself. The clean breaks it up and allows the athlete to last longer.

Racking Position

No matter the variation of the kettlebell clean, the kettlebell(s) always end up in a racking position. The racking position is where the kettlebell(s) are held at chest height with the elbow(s) under the weight and the shoulders are pulled down. There is a lot to learn about racking, as it's not just for receiving the weight, but also for resting and transitioning.

Common Mistake(s):

This information flows through from Kettlebell Clean

  1. Elbow disconnected in racking due to tension

    The elbow is disconnected from the body in the racking position because everything is tight and tense.

  2. Seeing the palm of the hand in racking

    The palm of the hand is facing forward in the racking position and usually, this is paired with the bell (the round bit of the kettlebell) being positioned on the outside of the arm rather than on the inside and the handle lays horizontally within the palm rather diagonally (45-degree angle).
