Kettlebell Snatch is an exercise in a military-applied sport. The jerk is performed first with one hand, then, without rest, with the other. The number of interceptions from one hand to another during the exercise is not limited. The athlete is allowed to rest in the position of the kettlebell at the top, but it is forbidden to press the kettlebell, lower it on the shoulder or chest, rest with the kettlebell lowered down, touch the kettlebell or any part of the body with his free hand, and also make more than one swing before the next lift. However, it is not a mistake to accidentally touch the platform with the kettlebell.
