Exercise of the Week: 1-Arm Bottom-Up Kettlebell Military Press

Exercise of the Week: 1-Arm Bottom-Up Kettlebell Military Press

Works on shoulders, core, triceps, and grip strength

The Approach:

1. Grasp a heavy kettlebell in your right hand and swing it upward until it’s next to your shoulder, with your elbow bent and your wrist straight. The weight should be upside down, with the bottom of the kettlebell facing the ceiling.

2. Keep your torso BRACED and UPRIGHT. This is the starting position.

3. Press the kettlebell up until your arm is completely straight. Then lower it back to the starting position. That’s one rep. Finish your right arm reps before repeating the move with your left arm.

4. Do 2-3 sets for each arm with 6-8 reps in each set.

Tips:

1. Keep your arm 45 degrees between the frontal and sagittal plane.

2. If your grip, arm or core tires, you won’t be able to push through the lift properly.
