Kettlebell Seated Press is a great exercise for building strength and stability in your shoulders and arms. This exercise requires you to sit on the floor with your legs spread out, and then clean
a single kettlebell to your shoulder. From there, you use your arm and shoulder strength to press the kettlebell up and out until it is locked out overhead. Finally, you return the kettlebell to the starting position. This exercise is a great way to build strength and stability in the upper body.
To incorporate the Kettlebell Seated Press into your workouts, you can follow these steps:
1. Warm up: Start your workout with a dynamic warm-up to prepare your muscles for the upcoming exercises. This can include jogging, jumping jacks, or arm circles.
2. Set up: Find a comfortable space on the floor where you can sit with your legs spread out. Make sure you have enough room to move the kettlebell without any obstacles.
3. Choose the right weight: Select a kettlebell that is challenging but manageable for you. It should be heavy enough to provide resistance, but not too heavy that it compromises your form.
4. Clean the kettlebell: Begin by cleaning the kettlebell to your shoulder. To do this, grip the handle firmly with one hand and swing it between your legs. As the kettlebell swings forward, use your hip and arm power to bring it up to your shoulder, keeping your elbow close to your body.
5. Press the kettlebell: Once the kettlebell is at your shoulder, engage your core and press the kettlebell up and out, extending your arm fully until it is locked out overhead. Keep your back straight and avoid arching or leaning backward.
6. Return to starting position: Slowly lower the kettlebell back down to your shoulder, maintaining control and stability. From there, carefully return the kettlebell to the floor.
7. Repeat: Complete the desired number of repetitions for one arm before switching to the other arm.
