TankGym Kettlebell Rehab Handouts- Snatch (negative phase)

The kettlebell overhead snatch exercise is great for developing and learning how to direct explosive power.
When my athletes and clients have progressed and are proficient at the kettlebell basics (front squat, dead lift, clean & press & swing) I will progress them to the Turkish Get Up (see previous post). As they improve with the TGU I will begin to introduce the kettlebell Snatch exercise. One of the ways I instruct this new pattern is by teaching the negative phase. I have the athlete perform 1 rep sets x 3-5 sets each side and progress them as they improve.
