Kettlebell Training: Swinging to Snatch Better

Emily Friedel

As a general rule, you want to be swinging something at least 4-8kg heavier than what you’re snatching, and if you’re doing high rep work you want to swing anywhere between 20-50 reps each hand.

The one arm swing is a great assistance exercise to improve your snatch – it provides grip endurance training, hits the posterior chain and certainly helps with the conditioning.

Now, as you probably know there are many ways to skin a cat and many ways to swing a kettlebell.  There are plently of debates about “styles” and whatnot, but to cut through the BS if you want to swing for the purpose of improving your snatch style isn’t really an issue – physics and efficiency of movement are what you need to focus on.


About me

Hi I'm Troy, coaching fitness is the reason I am employed at Genesis Kelmscott.

My real journey began with myself four years ago. After having injured myself at work, I decided it was time to go back and focus on being fit, active and healthy. In my late teens I practiced martial arts in the form of kickboxing for many years.

Once I stepped back into the gym, I re-found my passion for fitness and the healthy lifestyle it brings. I couldn't believe how much I had missed it. From then, I moved all my efforts into learning, practicing and studying all the things connected to building a fitter and healthier lifestyle. I practiced what I had learned on myself, and then begun helping family and friends. It was after these steps that I realised I wanted to become a qualified Personal Trainer, so I could help others on their fitness journey too.

For my clients, fitness coaching with me will not just be about showing you how to exercise. My goal is to pass on what I have learned and educate you on the importance of being active and healthy. You will not only have a better understanding of exercise techniques, but of your own abilities and find what works for you. With this you will be able to train SMARTER not Harder.

Feel free to contact me for a coaching session if you would like to get started on your journey.
