Jeff Martone: Kettlebell Master

Please familiarize yourselves with the kettlebell snatch demonstrated by Jeff Martone – there are a couple of videos on the subject offered at CrossFit Main Site
Jeff Martone currently serves as a a full-time defensive tactics, firearms and special response team instructor providing low-profile operational development training for the Nuclear National Security Administration (NNSA). He is also on staff at the US DOE National Training Center (a.k.a. Central Training Academy), and at the Direct Action Resource Center, America’s largest urban warfare training center. His training programs involve mainly kettlebells, deadlifts, weighted pullups, rope climbing, barrel lifting/throwing, handstands, tumbling, joint mobility drills, & muscle control exercises – there are excellent strength building articles available at his website Tactical Athlete.Here’s some great Martone quotes on kettlebell safety paraphrased from his interview with Power Athlete’s Mag:

Remember that you control the kettlebell, so don’t let it throw you around! Your goal should be to train and not to maim…so, use liberal amounts of common sense. When in doubt, just let the kettlebell safely drop to the ground. Proper form is the key to staying injury free, and ‘quick feet are happy feet’ [when frantically leaping to avoid a dropped kettlebell].

But I believe one of the biggest and most common mistakes a person can make is getting too focused on numbers. If you have tunnel vision on a specific number or repetitions or amount of weight you think you must achieve, you are setting yourself up for injury. Learn to listen to your body. Some days you feel like a hero, so by all means go with it and achieve a new PR. Other days you’ll feel like a zero. On these days, do yourself a favor and concentrate on perfect form rather than the poundage.
