The Kettlebell Jerk Part 1

Emily Friedel

What is it good for?

The kettlebell jerk is an overhead, ballistic kettlebell lift that relies mostly on leg power and aims to use the arms as little as possible. This means that it is a very powerful lift and will allow you to perform more reps or get a heavier weight overhead than you can with the overhead press or push press. Due to its ballistic nature, with higher repetition work done at a decent pace the kettlebell jerk is very good for cardiorespiratory fitness.
