The Kettlebell Switch is an action where a person training with a single Kettlebell changes which hand the Kettlebell is held in. This is really important when performing exercises such as Kettlebell Swings, High Pull, Snatches, Clean and the Clean and Press.
Although there are different ways to swap hands, the focus here is on the basics. This great thing about this exercise is that it will also improve your appearance and functional fitness giving you a lean lithe look, improving your cardiovascular and muscle endurance. The extra lean muscle tissue you gain will also turn your body into a fat burning machine allowing you burn excess calories even when you are resting.

Important Pointers of the Kettlebell Switch
Perform 3 – 5 repetitions with each hand then perform a Kettlebell Switch. This will allow you to improve your technique for each exercise and the Kettlebell Switch. Timing is also crucial, you don’t want to release the kettlebell too early, nor too late. When the kettlebell is released at the right time, gravity will allow the kettlebell to stay at the right height long enough for it to be grabbed with the other hand.
