How to Do the Kettlebell Jerk | Step-by-Step Tutorial

April 20, 2022

Here’s your easy-to-understand, step-by-step tutorial on how to do the kettlebell jerk.

We slow it down, break it down, and then we put it back together.

The kettlebell jerk is an advanced ballistic skill covered in the StrongFirst Level 2 (SFG2) certification.

It’s a full-body movement that’s fantastic for developing explosive power, strength, conditioning, hypertrophy, and overall athleticism.

The kettlebell jerk can be difficult to learn for two reasons:

[1] TIMING: If your timing is off, your jerk will quickly morph into a confused push press, or worse.

[2] MOBILITY: If you have limited shoulder and thoracic mobility, double kettlebell jerks will become your enemy, putting undue stress on your lower back.
