Kettlebell Angled Press

Pro Tip

If a kettlebell is unavailable, this movement can be performed with a single dumbbell.

How To

  1. Bend forward with a straight back until your torso is almost parallel to the ground while holding a kettlebell immediately in front of your chest.
  2. Exhale and raise the dumbbell diagonally overhead by extending your arms, focusing on keeping them up.
  3. Continue until your arms are fully extended.
  4. Inhale and return your arms back towards your body by driving your elbows back while keeping the kettlebell close to your torso, returning the kettlebell to the starting position.
