How to Stop Banging Your Forearm With the Kettlebell Snatch

The kettlebell snatch is an incredible movement, but there’s a bit of a learning curve.

We can’t think of the snatch simply as an extended swing. We need to understand it is a different exercise altogether.

To stop banging or bruising our forearm when doing kettlebell snatches, we need to remember a few things:

  • Keep the arm loose
  • Lead with the elbow
  • Punch through at the top

Following these simple tips will prevent the kettlebell from crashing into your arm, and save those forearms from bruising!
