Kettlebell Rotational Clean
In this version of a kettlebell clean we are simply adding some rotation to the movement. However, we can’t go as heavy in this exercise because we won’t have enough assistance from the hips because we aren’t performing a hip extension.

This is also a great exercise for the shoulder complex. We are producing force in a manner we normally don’t. We do movements projecting forward (in the sagittal plane) with exercises like the traditional clean or dumbbell front raises but almost never in the transverse plane (rotation).
Your core will be engaged as well. You have to maintain a rigid torso when the kettlebell travels back towards you.
