Yeah, and I think that's why your clean overall looks good. You know how when you clean and pull the elbow back? Practice doing that without a bell and making a "finger gun" - pointer finger out, thumb up. You don't want the thumb cocked to either side, but up. Now when you do that with a bell, you don't have your finger gun, but the kettlebell handle should be pretty vertical at that hip position, and the back of your hand shouldn't be canted. Now your hand just punches up from there, and the bell (and your hand) shouldn't have to twist around.Ok, so the turn should be sooner is what I’m seeing here? Thumb to collar bone earlier rather than as late as I am, but the final position is ok?
I probably overfocus on the thumb position as for a while I was catching the bells in the rack with the thumbs point out to either side and my palms on my chest. Not terribly comfortable.
