Strength Coach & Personal Trainer Rich Thurman from San Francisco’s Xodus Fitness demonstrates the Kettlebell Push Press
Instructions: Start with the feet just about shoulder width apart and the Kettlebell in the Racked Position.
Begin with a quick knee flexion and extension, followed by a push of the Kettlebell overhead.
Retract the shoulder blades and keep the fist pointed towards the sky or ceiling. Punch upwards until the arm is fully extended.
Bring the Kettlebell back to the racked position.
Catch the Kettlebell in the racked position with a slight bounce of the knees at the bottom to absorb the shock.
Note: Be sure not to hike the shoulders up and keep the shoulders down and back. Also be certain not to allow the wrist to extend backwards.
Benefits: The Kettlebell Push Press is a great exercise for explosive power generation. Unlike the Strict Press, which is about Strength, the Push Press allows for heavier loads to be lifted overhead from the added use of the legs to generate additional power.
*Strengthens the muscles of the Shoulders, Arms, Back and Core.
