5 Common Mistakes with the Kettlebell Jerk

April 27, 2022

These are the five most common mistakes I see with the kettlebell jerk.  Are you making any of them?

Make sure to avoid all of these, especially mistakes #3 and #5 — those ones will make your low back tight and angry. 😖

0:00 — Intro

0:15Rushing the second dip (timing issue).

0:43Pressing the bells out (also a timing issue).

1:07Hips shooting forward when lowering the bells (do this if you want an angry, tight low back 😣).

1:35Too much tension (inability to quickly and seamlessly transition between tension and relaxation).

2:06Lack of mobility in the shoulders and thoracic spine (until you can own the overhead lockout position, jerks just aren’t your thing).

Last week’s video was a full step-by-step tutorial on how to do the kettlebell jerk.  Watch it here!
