The Short Cycle Jerk

by | Sep 13, 2013 | Kettlebell Training

by Boris Bojanovic

The short cycle jerk is one of the main exercises we teach in our level 2 kettlebell workshop. While the Get Up is the most complex grind exercise the jerk would have to be the most complex ballistic exercise as it has 5 stages which need to be coordinated & often have the body moving in two different directions at the same time. When first learning the jerk it can be confusing so here we provide reference videos to remind you.

In a past article (Breathing in Kettlebells) we covered the anatomical breathing patterns for the ballistic kettlebell exercises. Below are videos of the stages of the short cycle jerk as a reference & so that you can match up your breathing to it.
