    What are your favourite KB exercises?

    I just bought an 8 kg one for now, and have been doing sets of swings through the day as I remember.

    I remember KB cleans from CF, but can't remember any others.
    So yeah, what are your favs?

    I like the different swing variations. Just took a workshop today for the cleans and snatches. I need a lot of work on both.

    My xfit offers a kb class every weekend, the variety of exercises you can do is pretty broad.
    2 handed swings
    1 handed swings
    American style swing (bring the kb fully overhead at peak of swing)
    Goblet squats (hold the kb close to your chest and squat)
    Heartbeat squats (goblet squat, at bottom of squat push kb out in front of you, lock out your elbows, then return)
    Lunges holding the kb in the rack position
    push-ups with one hand on the kb
    Good mornings (feet wide, straight legged, hinge forward at the waist keeping back straight) with the kb on your upper back
    Overhead presses
    Turkish get-ups (too complicated to explain here, they are miserable but very effective)
    Rows

    I stick with the basics: swings (double and single handed, eccentric), goblet and front squats, military press and Turkish get-up. Well worth investing a few hours with a qualified RKC/Strongfirst instructor as good technique is extremely important when using kettlebells.
    I love them as they are so versatile and great for fat loss / conditioning / strength and no need to join a gym (once you invested in some bells).

    Goblet squats and heavy one-arm farmer's walks are my two favorite.

    Nothing beats snatches!! But getting the technique down takes time. I recommend swings and TGUs, then transition with high pulls (a one-arm swing that pulls "in"/back a little at the top - about eye level). After that, continuing into the turnover without banging your arm is not that hard.
