If you have wrist pain or discomfort when holding a kettle bell, check your form for this common mistake.
On the left, you see the wrist is broken and bent backward, causing the weight to pull downward on the wrist. This puts unnecessary strain on the ligaments in the wrist and also compromises strength in the movement and elevates the risk for further issues and injury down the road.
On the right, the wrist is straightened out properly bracing itself. No unnecessary strain. The weight is properly loaded and distributed and the exercise itself is now the focus.
