Due to the recent increase in lifters competing in double kettlebell events, especially women, I made a video outlining key pointers for the double kettlebell rack position.
Developing a good rack position is essential to find relaxation within your 10 minute set so you can last longer and go faster!
The purpose of the kettlebell Jerk is to move the kettlebell from the rack position to overhead using the legs and hips. While the shoulder and arm stabilize the bell in the overhead position, all the force to lift the kettlebell should be generated from the lower body.
Timing is of the essence in the Jerk. The lifter must powerfully launch the bell from the hips, then quickly squat underneath to let the legs take the load of the bells as they land overhead.
