Kettlebell Exercises to Kick Butt #11: Kettlebell Floor Press

This is a good movement to hit your chest muscles at a different angle. The focus of the exercise is on the chest, but it also gives your triceps and anterior deltoids an excellent workout. It's a variation on the bench press, and it's definitely one to try if you want to switch up your workout. Note: Avoid touching your elbow to the floor, as that gives you a moment of rest--CHEATING!   [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="650"] Source:[/caption]

Kettlebell Floor Press

Lie on a Yoga mat, with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Grip the kettlebell in your right hand, with your elbow resting on the floor and tucked into your side. Your palm should be facing your body. Press the kettlebell upwards, twisting your wrist as you lift so that your palm ends up facing your feet.  Your arm should be extended over your shoulder. Bend your elbow, twist your wrists, and lower the weight to its original position, keeping your elbow off the floor. Reps as desired   You may find that it's surprisingly difficult!
