The kettlebell high pull is considered an intermediate level exercise that will primarily target your shoulders, hips arms, glutes, and of course legs. The high pull is a foundational type of exercise that will help you progress to other kettlebell exercises,for example – the “clean & snatch”.
Here are 3 quick tips for doing the high pull:
1.Start with light weight so you can perfect the high pull technique before using heavier weights.
2.Make sure to pull the kettlebell to the side so it doesn’t graze your face.
3.Don’t pause for any length of time at any part of this exercise, kettlebell movements are continuous, with no pause at the top or the bottom
