Type of exercise:Strength

  1. Clean two kettlebells to your shoulders. Stand straight and hold the kettlebells with your palms facing in. This is your start position.

  2. Raise one kettlebell and extend your arm up and over your head. Turn your wrist while you do so that your palms end up facing forward.

  3. Lower the kettlebell back into the start position. Repeat the same with the other kettlebell. This counts as one repetition.

  4. Repeat for as many reps as needed.


  • As soon as you lower one kettlebell, press the other up. Resting between the presses can cause strain on your wrist.
