Kettlebell Exercises to Kick Butt #10: Kettlebell Slingshots

This is a great movement to do to work not just your back and arms, but also your core muscles. It's not a movement for beginners, but those wanting to improve core strength will love it! The fact that you're moving the kettlebell around means your back and arms are going to be working very hard. Add the swinging of the kettlebell around your body, and your core muscles--particularly your abs and obliques--get a piece of the action.

Kettlebell Slingshots

Spread your feet just beyond shoulder width apart, plant your feet firmly, and bend your knees slightly. Grip the kettlebell in your right hand, holding it in front of you. Swing the kettlebell across the front of your body, lifting it to about chest level as you swing it. As your right arm swings around behind your back, pass it to your left hand. That left arm should keep the momentum going, swinging it around and to the front again--where it's passed to the right hand once more. Reps as desired--but make sure to swing in both directions!
