Perfect form is a journey, not a destination. Form is fluid and depends on the weight used, the training protocol, etc.

We hear a lot about using perfect form because it's important to work on your techniques. But let's have a little honesty by saying you never actually get there 100% of the time.

So you can handle a weight with good form. What if we added 30kg? What then? Form will be shaky. Can you do 100 snatches with the 16kg kettlebell with great form? Excellent! How about 150? Form that's excellent at 100 might start to break down as you reach 150. How could it not? You're reaching your limits. As you reach the limits, something has to give and form usually slips.

Workouts are workouts -- not demonstrations. Work on technique but realize it will slip slightly from time to time. And don't let that hold you back!

  • Speaking of perfect form, how are your snatches coming along? I am still getting blisters with the 24kg bell. Any hints?
  • Really look at the palms as the bell comes down. And try to be super soft on the descent. I was dropping the Kb with my arm doing the 16kg but with the 24kg you really have to let the whole body drop the bell.

    Other than those tips, practicing a little each day rather than hitting it hard 1-2x a week starting making a difference for me. Hope those help. The 24kg is a bitch.
