Kettlebell Circle Catch Core Training

Short Description
  1. Swing the Smashbell from the side of your body.
  2. Swing the Smashbell in front of the chest and intercept it there.
  3. Bring Smashbell back by swinging it backwards next to the body.
  4. Execute the exercise in both directions.
Long Description
  1. The Smashbell is held by the handle and swung to the side behind the body. The other arm is held in front of the body and helps the body to keep its tension as a counter movement to the the swing of the Smashbell. One leg steps forward and the toes point forward. The upper body is slightly turned towards the swinging side.
  2. The kettlebell is then swung from backwards, forwards and up. The arm stays extended. The other arm is lifted up at the same time so that the Smashbell is stopped by the other hand. This prevents over rotation to the side. The hips are extended forward during the swing. The upper body is straight and the chest is extended forward.
  3. The Smashbell is swung back to the starting position. The other arm maintains the balance of the body. The upper body is brought slightly forward and the hips are slightly bent.
  4. To prevent a one-sided workout, the exercise should be executed in both directions.
Hold the back straight. During the swing, work also from the hips and keep the body raised.
