Kettlebell Exercises to Kick Butt #13: Military Kettlebell Press

The Military Press is one of the best compound exercises to do, as it works your shoulders, back, and triceps all at the same time. You should already be doing the Military Press--either with a barbell or dumbbells--as part of your regular strength training routine, but changing it up with kettlebells can add a bit of spice to your workouts.   [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="675"] Source:[/caption]

Military Kettlebell Press

Stand with your legs spread slightly beyond shoulder width apart, with your knees bent and your toes pointing slightly outward. Grip a kettlebell in each hand, and hold them in the "rack" position at shoulder height. Press the kettlebells straight up, extending your arms until they are straight. DO NOT lock your elbows. Pause for a one-count at the height of the press, and lower the weights back down to the rack position. Reps as desired    This movement is supremely simple, and yet very effective. It's a beginner move that anyone can do as part of their weekly routine.
