I am an athlete.
I can sink a 3-pointer from every angle.
I can drop-kick a soccer ball the length of a field.
I can throw a football with a perfect spiral.
But gosh-darn-it, for the freakin’ life of me, I can not figure out a kettlebell snatch.
Matching forearm bruises from the 25-pound kettlebell slamming into my arm 150 times this morning.
I see everyone around me in the class doing it right but for some reason, I just can’t get the physics of it down. The thing about kettlebells is that it really is a science of motion. I’ve felt this in other moves we’ve done — where the bell is weightless because your body and all the parts are in perfect motion. But those stupid snatches, they just don’t wanna play.
That said, blisters don’t care about your pretty form.
Alright kettlebell, it’s on!
Domestically (and blisterly) Yours,
