Kettlebell High Pull Steps
- Start with the kettlebell on the floor between your feet. Your feet should be set slightly more than shoulder-width apart, at a 45? angle to one another.
- With your spine in a neutral position, bend your knees and lower into a squat position.
- Using both hands, pick up the kettlebell and push through your heels. Engage your core as you move back up to your original standing position, pulling the kettlebell to hip level as you go.
- Raise the kettlebell until the handle reaches chin level, pointing your elbows up in the process. Lower the kettlebell back to your waist and get back into the squat stance.
- Do this for 12-15 repetitions.
We always recommend that you work with a fitness professional to assure that you're doing your kettlebell workout using proper form and procedure, as this will help you avoid injury. This is particularly important if you're new to kettlebell exercise. If you need a referral to find a fitness coach or personal trainer near you, RX Fitness Equipment can help.
