    Question Bottom's Up Snatches

    I just tried today some bottom's up snatches, and they seemed to be much simple to do than a regular snatch. Just curious to see if any one else has experimented with them, and as to whether there can be any value to such an excercise?
    All comments (within reason) welcome!

    I never heard of doing a BUP snatch. Seems like you have to slow the snatch down to do it, if that is the case I would have to vote thumbs down. :-)

    Think of yourself as a bladed weapon that requires sharpening daily. Remember the finest edge will dull the quickest, so don’t rest on past accomplishments, keep training. As your technique becomes sharper your skills will be more difficult to improve, then you must increase the realism and intensity of your training. To live the martial way one must train their entire lives.

    Actually, in one sense it is quicker, because you don't have to let the bell flip over, and then flip back again when you bring it down. And it sure is easier on the hands!

    If you are "letting" the bell flip over, rather than moving the handle around the bell, of course it is going to be slower. It is also not a real snatch.

    I can't see the bottom up snatch working anything better than a regular snatch that couldn't be done with a couple of much better exercises.

    If your hands are a problem, do swings or high pulls. More work done is less time the a bottom up snatch.

    Well I am not sure how you do it really so it is hard for me to visualize. But the advantage of the kettlebell snatch is you can explode into to the movement then arrest the momentum by taming the arc.

    I would think if you try to BU a snatch you must slow down the movement to have control over the bell, so you can keep it straight up.

    A snatch is a ballistic, I think the BU works better with grinds so you can practice greasing the groove and total compression at the top of the BUP.

    Post a vid of it if you can.

    John Brookfield makes them look pretty freaking easy with a 50k bell. I've just experimented a little bit. Not sure the bug is ever really going to bite me.

    haha cool, that guy is a tank. I would not call it a snatch though. And I was right the movement has to be slowed down, you can't punch up through hard like on a snatch.

    But I see nothing wrong with that exercise. I love how he juggles it on the way down, holy moly that guy is strong.

    MR. Brookfield is right. Holy crap that is amazing. It as he presses the KB it actually looks like your watching the film backwards - it seems to go up THAT easy. Very impressive.

    I tried this move once with a 24kg. It was way too scary and I'll probably never try it again. I love John. I love him.

    Ok.
    You guys always ask what your goal is. My goal is to be as strong as that guy.
    Advise?
