Kettlebell Exercise Information
The kettlebell snatch is an exercise where the weight is moved from below the hips to overhead in an explosive and ballistic movement that's uninterrupted.
There are many different kettlebell snatch variations with variables as follows, but certainly not limited to:
- Open palm
- Waiters grip
There is also the full and half snatch. The full snatch is where the kettlebell is snatched overhead and then dropped from overhead into the next rep. The half snatch is where the kettlebell is snatched overhead but then is lowered into a racking position from where it moves into the next rep.
When you see Any Snatch programmed in a workout, it means that any variation of the snatch can be used. It's up to the athlete to decide what is best to use, a swinging or a squat movement, Hardstyle for speed or Sportstyle for endurance, and so on.
The shortest path and fastest variation is the hang snatch. The longest and slowest is the pendulum snatch. The longest, but not slowest is the dead snatch.
