At Method Strength & Performance, we will teach the kettlebell jerk after the Push Press. The kettlebell jerk is great for power, strength, building muscle, fat loss, and conditioning. There’s definitely a learning curve with this movement but it’s well worth it.
Check out the video below to see what a kettlebell jerk looks like using two bells.
