The double arm high pull performed with the kettlebell is a fantastic way to coordinate the strength of upper and lower body. This exercise progression incorporates two phases. The first one is the grind and the second one is ballistic. Take the kettlebell in a double hand hook grip and stand up and do a high pull. Come back down again, squat, and come up and do a high pull. It is very controlled and smooth. To progress this movement, add a ballistic hip thrust to come up. As you drive up through the hips, drive the elbows up, coordinating and integrating your total body strength, and strengthening your lower body and upper body.
