This is absolutely one of the best exercises ever! It is the perverbial 'total body' movement. It requires balance, a strong core, focus, coordination and technique. The actual movement even without the kettle bell is challenging and completely applicable to mixed martial arts. The movement is biomechanically sound and depicts how to properly get up from the ground.
- Keep the kettlebell above the shoulder joint.
- Avoid hyperextending your elbow.
- Keep the shoulder blade depressed and lengthen you rneck.
- Do not let go of your core.
- Warm up with about 5 reps of this movement on each side without weight.
