Unilateral Overhead Shoulder Press With Kettlebell

Unilateral Overhead Shoulder Press With Kettlebell

  • HOW: Get a kettlebell set-up in only one hand in the front rack position. Be sure to keep your knuckles facing the ceiling throughout the duration of this exercise. Set a sturdy base by getting your feet shoulder width apart and engaging your core. You can place your other hand on your hip or out to the side for balance. Now push outwards into the kettlebell towards the scapular plane (listen to cues to find this) as you simultaneously push the kettlebells up overhead. Slowly bring the kettlebell back down to starting position, and repeat.
 
  • FEEL: This should feel like an upper body workout, especially your shoulder and triceps.
 
  • COMPENSATION: Do not lose kettlebell position, do not arch your low back, do not use your lower body for momentum.
