Kettlebell Series: Half Kneeling KB Press

Want more variation in your workout? Exercises performed with kettlebells are a great way to shock your muscles into growth while improving power and explosiveness from the ground up!

Check out VIM’s Kettlebell Video Series – Each week we’ll post a video demonstrating a new kettlebell move. Next move, Half Kneeling KB Press!

  1. Select an appropriate load and adopt a half-kneeling position on the floor. Your right knee should be down, and your left knee up; take the weight with your right hand. Clean the dumbbell to your shoulder, using both hands if necessary. You should start with a neutral grip, with the palm in. Keep your head up, shoulders back, and your spine neutral. This will be your starting position.
  2. Initiate the movement by extending the arm, flexing and abducting the shoulder to rotate the arm as you press above your head. Pause at the top of the motion before reversing the movement to return to the starting position.
  3. Complete the desired number of repetitions before switching to the opposite side.

“I very much enjoyed my membership with VIM. I have to say that the highlight of my experience was personal training and small group training with Valerie. She was extremely committed to my success and helped me establish an effective goal plan. I saw incredible progress with her (I lost 10 pounds) and I am stronger, happier and healthier. I also really enjoyed her style for leading small group and yoga classes. It is clear she is passionate about this work and dedicated to her clients.”-Ani
