Step by Step Instructions for the Kettlebell Push-Up with Row
In 2019, kettlebells are more popular than ever, so we're bringing you another in our series of step by step instructions for kettlebells. This week, we're covering the proper execution of the Kettlebell Push-Up with Row exercise. This kettlebell exercise is for advanced users and should be approached with care and preparation, as with all weightlifting exercises. The muscle groups most affected by this kettlebell exercise routine will be the middle back, latissimus dorsi, biceps, triceps, abdominals and chest. Remember to always warmup before you begin any kettlebell workout. To see our other posts on kettlebell exercises, click "kettlebells" in the dropdown Categories menu to your right.
Kettlebell Push-Up with Row
- Get into a push-up position holding a kettlebell in your left hand.
- Do a push-up and hold the position when you reach the top.
- Push together your shoulder blades and raise your left elbow until it is roughly 15 cm above your body, raising the kettlebell to your chest as you go.
- Lower yourself back to the starting position, and try to perform 8-10 repetitions on each arm.
We always advise working with a fitness professional in order to assure proper form and execution of your kettlebell workout, at least until you have progressed to the intermediate stage. It will help you avoid injury and prevent the formation of poor weightlifting habits. This is particularly important if you're new to kettlebell exercise.
