There are several components to treating losing weight naturally. One resource I found that successfully combines these is the Bell train blueprint (check it out on google) it's the best blueprint i've seen. look at the super info .


Thanks for posting these videos! Steve's helped me learn the more difficult moves since I've started using kettlebells. There is so much bad info about kettlebells out there, so it's great that Steve's videos are here. He's one of only a few people whose media I trust (Pavel and Lurie), but he's the only one that has so much for free online. I'll buy one of his DVDs soon, however, as a way to have it all together in one place.

This is gem! Thanks for the great pointers!

I still don't get how to slip your hands in like a glove while swinging the kettlebell back like that.  When I do this it slams into my wrist/forearm.  THe ifrst time I did this it totally trashed my watch...  FUBAR!!!!!!!!!!


yep. i know the bad fat is the reason that stopping 6 pack coming outside even we work out well. Between Do you know about the 7 odd foods that kill belly fat if you don't know about them you must see this. if you are serious go for it now bit.ly/13esRDq?=geoge


Sir, you are an excellent instructor. Thank you.

Good video - thanks.

Excellent directions! My forearms were getting a bit sore..

Hi, have you heard of http://musclegend.com yet? Just go to their web site at http://musclegend.com On their website you can watch a useful free video showing how you can start building noticeable muscle mass very fast. It made it easier for Devan to break through his muscle mass building plateau and therefore gain chiseled lean muscle mass free of fat fast. Hopefully it will help you as well.


I like this technique for the clean. Efficient. However, i have seen many clean techniques which are more like one arm swings...


Yes I agree cant even believe it. we must kill the bad fat and belly first to get the 6 pack. And I saw an interview with body building champion where he talks about 7 odd foods he eats to keep his abs hard. worth watch here now bit.ly/1eZPU6U?=hkmjp


give me a clue, what record label?


Any true Hip-Hop fans. This man has almost the exact same voice as which quality emcee??


I've been avoiding cleans because my technique was uncomfortable.  I followed your video and now my technique feels good.  Cheers, mate.


Hey YouTubers, have you heard about Max Muscle Method? (search for it on google) You will find out about the serious crimes we commit against ourselves. With Max Muscle Method, you will discover how to build muscle quickly.

R Becker

Since I'm a martial artist I might consider banging up my forearms the hard way :D

Gael Gundin Guevara

Great video! Clear and effective

Riley McFadden

I was having trouble with this and I go to a class, the way you explained it made a lot of sense and helped me, thanks


Exactly what I was looking for


This was great, thanks! I really improved my clean. The most helpful part, for me, was seeing how the bell lined up on your side (from the side view angle). I'm now bringing it in more and having greater stability, also I am able to move up to my heavier bell and not have it hurt my forearm and wrist.

Oggie Marinski

awesome explanation. love it. thank you so much.

Nero Angelo

Thanks!! Seriously! LIKE!! 5 STARS!! whatever!! You rock!


You can see that he's been practicing CMA. He's way of teaching is similar to the one good wushu instructors use (like Zhu Hong from Beijing Sport University)

Greg Ory

V shred actually knows how to do it properly, dont waste my time with satire


At first I thought it was Matt Damon and he was pissed and it was like in a movie where he can see me and shit... but it actually turned out to be a good video I can't really make fun of! Tired of all the other videos with so much introduction before they actually execute the move.


I wanna look like that!


I think he bought them at Walmart.

domenico bolognese

thanks to this video I can actually clean my kettlebell very easily with a very smooth and "clean" movement. Is that normal to loose the contact arm/hip compared to the swing for example ?

sammy j

wow amazing instruction ive been doing it the bad way for a long time thank you for posting

Tony Jelev

Thumbs up for this video


Excellent! Thank you for posting this.

Indika Perera

The best kettlebell instructor in internet.


Amazing, one of the most clear-cut explanations of the clean I have seen. All these videos are extremely helpful.


This is, of course, the MEN'S version of the clean. Women need to rack to the side, to avoid damaging the breasts. Counteract by jutting the hip a bit so as to not wrench the wrist or arm, as Steve says. Good video!

I don't have a kettelbell can I use dumbbell ?

Ken Brooks

Thanks. I've recently added the KB clean & press to a full body circuit. This is the best instructional video on the KB hang clean I've seen yet. I was committing the errors of swinging the bell too far out in front, allowing the bell to wind up too far outside my shoulder, & flipping the bell into my forearm ( I quickly thought to remove my watch!) . Could any of these bad form moves contribute to the pain in my right hand along the pinky finger edge to the wrist? Keep the posts coming.

Max 420



so, its not false if you do let the KB hit you forearm? or does it damage the joints somehow?

Arko Day

Hey there, have you tried "MuscLeader" (have a look on Google)? There you will find a good free video demonstrating how to develop noteworthy muscle mass very fast while burning unwanted fat as well. Brandon and many other guys enjoyed great success utilizing this technique. Hopefully it works for you also...

Joe G

this guy looks like john cena

eillene moore

Thank you. I had been making the common error of slamming the KB into my wrist and didn't know how to correct it. Your instruction is gold! Thank you again


My Forearms thank you for this video!


Thanks for the great tips. Especially the "glove slipping." I try these for the first time today, and I think I way accidentally doing right on some of my reps. But I was getting tired of that "banging the forearm."


Ha, I'm going to be bouncing kettle bells off the walls at my gym. When they ask me WTF I'm doing, I'll just reference them here.

Pradeep Ghuge

Thanks a lot,throughly explained


These are some of the best kettlebell instructional videos on youtube. Mr. Cotter really goes into great detail, awesome stuff!

Hello, have you heard of "Musclegend" (search on Google)? On their website you will find a useful free video demonstrating the way to grow notable lean muscle fast while eliminating unwanted fat simultaneously. Christian is one of the many guys that enjoyed great success by using this methodology. I hope it helps you as well...


I like your guns. Hey my kettlebell hits me on the back of hand when i finish clean. I also feel that my abs work as well during clean. What kettlebells are those, dragoondoor? Thanks your video helps.


Those shoulders should have their own ID card

Jixuan Cheng

Really good! Thank you

Jose Rodriguez

Very thorough and precise explanation. Thanks 4 da video.

Ivan Milovanovic

Hello there, have you tried "MuscLeader" (have a look on Google)? There you will find a smart free video featuring the best way to build up visible muscles easily whilst burning body fat at the same time. Steve is one of the many men which enjoyed positive results applying this technique. It might work for you as well.

lundie svenssen

Excellent form and great advice!

Eddie Alvarez

Nicely Instructed!!! Thanx STEVE!!!!!!

Sudip Bhattarai

Hi, have you heard about "Musclegends" (just search Google)? There you can watch a great free video explaining how you can build up noticeable lean muscle easily. It made it possible for Brandon to bareak through his bodybuilding plateau and thus build up cut lean muscle mass without fat fast. I hope it will work for you also.

Rizwan Ibrahim

if you guys expect to get ripped immediately without wasting a single another minute in the gym, then you should look at this online video SIXPP.COM It is not their love for men, rather it is the impotence of their love that hinders Christians of today from burning us.


Very clear explanation!

DimmuBurger King

interesting practice item..watch out for hernia though :)
