The Kettlebell Snatch, as demonstrated here by CrossFit Seminar Staff member James Hobart, is a great single arm exercise for developing all the similar strength and movement technique as the barbell Snatch, but with a few extra benefits:
– strengthens the stabiliser muscles in the shoulders
– addresses any left-right imbalances that may compensate for each other with barbell work
– works the core as it works against the tendency for the body to rotate with single arm work
So don’t see the kettlebell version of the Snatch as the easy option!
