Front, lateral shoulder

Coach's Tips

It's a workout that can target the shoulder using a kettlebell that's a little more unstable than a dumbbell!

How to

Starting Position

1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes slightly pointing outwards. 2. Hold a kettlebell in your right hand, with the handle horizontal to your forearm and the weight resting on the back of your wrist. 3. Keep your arm straight and your elbow close to your side. 4. Engage your core and keep your chest lifted.

Proper Form

1. Exhale as you press the kettlebell up above your head, keeping your arm straight. 2. Inhale as you lower the kettlebell back down to your shoulder. 3. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.

Breathing Technique

1. Exhale as you press the kettlebell up. 2. Inhale as you lower the kettlebell back down.

Precautions

1. Make sure to keep your elbow close to your side as you press the kettlebell up. 2. Do not rush the movement. Move with control and focus on engaging your core. 3. Avoid arching your back or letting your chest drop as you press the kettlebell up. 4. Do not lock your elbow at the top of the movement. Keep a slight bend in your arm.
