Personal Trainer / Strength & Conditioning Coach Rich Thurman from San Francisco’s Xodus Fitness demonstrates the Kettlebell Push Press and Alternating Press exercise.
Instructions: Start in the Double Racked Position with the Kettlebells
Shoulder blades should be contracted down and back and the chest open.
For the Push Press: Slightly bend the knees and as they straighten use the power generated to push the Kettlebells overhead. Engage the abs and try not to flare the ribcage.
Slowly lower back to the racked position.
For the Alternating Press: Lock the core and engage the abs. Press one Kettlebell overhead and lower to the racked position. As soon as the other Kettlebell is racked, begin to press the other overhead.
Benefits: The Push Press is a great explosive power generating exercise. It is a great full body movement that transfers power from the ground, through the core and into the shoulders for an explosive press.
The Alternating Press is a great exercises for challenging the core stabilizers as well as shoulder stability. It also challenges coordination.
