The Kettlebell Wall-Ball Shot

The Kettlebell Wall-Ball Shot


Ideally, what we’re doing is a wall ball, right? So we go up, we catch, we squat, arm extension, into the next one. Here it is at speed, though. Just like we would think about a good wall ball, elbows bend, knees bend and I descend. Alright, show it to me segmented and then show it to me kind of free flow.

    OK, looks like an awesome movement but will the athletes be able to seperate the movement from the squat clean where it's not a swing but has a different pulling motion. It's already very hard for many to learn the clean motion. I'm thinking this will only confuse them more. Anyone with any experience with this?

    These are actually called Kettlebell Taters and are not exclusive to CrossFit. This demo has a slight variation where there's a slight upward push press at the top of the movement, where the Tater simply flips the kettlebell back so you can grab the handle after the squat.

    I'm no Crossfit hater, I've done it and believe in its effectiveness when done right. But this? This is the exercise equivalent of Bud Light Apple.

    I enjoy Crossfit, but this is one of the most pointless and dangerous exercises I've ever seen. There'll be a record number of CF fail videos soon.
