Single Arm KB Push Press


Overhead pressing has been a staple of strength-training programs throughout time. The kettlebell press adds a difficult challenge because the kettlebell is asymmetrical, which creates much more activation from stabilizing musculature. The single-arm push press challenges the body from head to toe and requires a significant amount of core activation due to the unilateral nature of the exercise.

1 Hold a kettlebell by the handle in a rack position; keep your elbow tight at your side.
2 Dip your body by flexing the hips and knees slightly, while keeping your torso upright.
3 Immediately extend at the hips, knees and ankles, driving through the heels as if you were jumping to create momentum.
4 Press the kettlebell overhead to lockout by extending the arms, using your body’s momentum to move the weight.
5 Control the weight back to the starting position to perform the next repetition
