The Kettlebell Jerk Part 2

Standing up and completing fixation

After the second dip, the upward phase of the jerk is simply completed by standing up.  You want to hold the kettlebell in overhead lockout position for a moment, and then bring it back to rack.  A lot of people try to drop the kettlebell back to rack as they stand up from the second dip, which robs them of many of the benefits of the lift such as building supreme shoulder stability and means fixation isn’t completed.


About me

I’m Steph and I’m a personal trainer at Genesis Berwick.

Fitness and wellbeing are really important to me. I’ve been athletic and into sport my whole life but really found something I love in hitting the weights at the gym. This is something I hope to share with my clients and get them to love coming to the gym as much as I do.

The people I train get dynamic and intense workouts with me and we do everything from free-weights to bodyweight training and functional exercises to get them working hard and feeling the benefits of exercise. I also give all my clients nutrition tips and great recipes to keep them motivated and help them achieve their fitness goals.
