My Double Kettlebell Lockout Hurts the Eyes

Whelp, I filmed my double jerk sets with the 32kg, and my lockouts are absolutely atrocious.   Real, real ugly.  Time to put in extra work to mobilize the thoracic spine and shoulder girdle.  Focusing on your weaknesses may not be fun or enjoyable, but is necessary to develop and grow (HINT: this is a great lesson that translates from the gym to real world).


Warm- up

A) 32kg KB Double Jerks: 4 x 1 min sets (8, 8 , 8, 9)

32kg KB Snatch: 4 x 1 min sets (5/5, 5/5, 6/6, 6/7)

24kg KB Double Jerk: 1 x 2 min set (17), 1 x 1 min set (12)

24kg KB Snatch: 1 x 2 min set (16/17), 1 x 1 min set (11/12)


B) 32kg KB Front Squat 2 x 7

Inverted Row 2 x 7

Cool Down

Since mobility and stabilization work may not be as sexy or exciting as the actual lifting, here is a video to make you feel like a beast while you put in the work.  Enjoy!
