The Kettlebell Press
Basics are best, but it seems some tend to forget that. Heck, I tend to forget that at times.
Below are two videos on how to perform the kettlebell (KB) press; a basic strength move that you will also learn at the RKC.
The first one reviews the barebones of how to do it correctly. I had to learn this the hard way and thought I was doing it correctly, and I was not even close! Luckily, I did a session with Sr. RKC Geoff Neupert a few years ago and he set me straight. Over the past couple years I’ve played around with it and taught others, so check out the short clip on how to get the basics of the KB Press down pat.
If you care looking for a bit more variety on your KB Press and you are doing great on the standard version, here are a few more options for you
1) Bottoms Up KB Press
2) Open Palm KB Press
3) Pizza KB Press
4) By the Horns KB Press
For further information, check out my article at Dragon Door
All of this is a great start, but it is not a substitute for a session with a coach who can evaluate your form in person.
Email me at michaelTnelson@yahoo.com if you are interested in a Z-Health/Kettlebell combo session to take your kettlebell work to the next level and make sure you have the basics down cold.
