Kettlebell Sit Up Press
The kettlebell sit up press is a variation of the kettlebell 2 hand push press and turns it from a shoulder kettlebell exercise to a full body exercise. Just because you are sitting down doesn’t mean it will be easier than performing it standing up. Having your feet off the ground makes all the difference.
Start the exercise by sitting down with your legs raised off the ground and knees bent. Hold the kettlebell upside-down at chest level so that the handle is closest to the ground. Raise the bell over your head by extending your arms as much as possible. Return the bell to chest level to complete a rep. Remember, your feet should not touch the ground at any time.
Since this kettlebell exercise is classified as intermediate to advanced, a total of 10 reps is recommended for a set. You could opt for a heavier kettlebell and perform 1-2 sets or choose a lighter kettlebell and complete 2-4 sets. It’s all a matter of preference and what you’re comfortable with and if you want to allow more time for other exercises during your workout routine.
