General And Specifics

  • this is a good warm-up kettlebell exercise for the shoulder area
  • it improves the flexibility

  • ideally, use a kettlebell, alternatively you can use a weight plate or a dumbbell with different weights
  • pick a weight with which you can do the exercise for 1-2 minutes

Starting Position

  • grasp a kettlebell with both hands
  • hold it with the bottom up
  • the palms point to the body
  • your posture is upright
  • the feet are hip-wide away
  • bend the knee a bit for a stable standing
  • guide the weight up to the upper chest area, your arms are bent

Correct Execution
