You pick the kettlebell up, you put the kettlebell down, you pick the kettlebell up, then drop it to the ground. You do a set of pull-ups, and start another round. That’s what it’s all about.
We’ve got kettlebell snatches Wednesday. Just like sweatpants or long socks for rope climbs, I recommend wrist wraps or a sweet sweatband to minimize forearm contusions. The video above isn’t the most exciting ever, but you’ll notice Austin (foreground) Just. Keeps. Moving. Breaks are minimal, and you may also notice that he releases his grip at the top of each snatch. Useful, given the 135 pulling reps in this one. Find your rhythm on the snatches, sing the song if it helps, and plow through those pull-ups.
