Step by Step Instructions for the Alternating Kettlebell Press
Continuing our series of instructional posts in the proper execution of kettlebell exercises, this week we demonstrate the Alternating Kettlebell Press. This kettlebell exercise affects the shoulders and triceps and is suited to the intermediate level and above. Don't forget to warm up before beginning your kettlebell workout.
Alternating Kettlebell Press Steps
- Using the clean motion, bring two kettlebells to shoulder level.
- One of the kettlebells should then be moved overhead by extending your arm through the elbow. Make sure to turn you wrist so that your palm is in a forward facing position. The other kettlebell should be held in place on your shoulder.
- The kettlebell that has been pressed should be returned to shoulder level, at which point the other kettlebell should be pressed.
- Repeat these movements 8-10 times on either side to complete your kettlebell workout routine.
Always Exercise Caution
We always recommend working with a fitness professional when exercising with kettlebells or other free weights in order to assure proper form and procedure and to avoid injury, particularly if you're new to kettlebell exercise. If you would like a referral to help you find a fitness coach or personal trainer near you, let us know. We can help.
