“I love this exercise because it works your cardiovascular system, explosive whole-body power, balance, and coordination, while also strengthening your core and shoulder musculature and improving posture and alignment,” says Jeff Bell, fitness expert and NYC master trainer.
How to do it: Grab two kettlebells and swing them between your legs, preparing to vigorously thrust hips and kettlebell forward and upward. From the swing, pull both kettlebells up, elbows high above shoulder height. Continue the upward momentum, preparing to vigorously lunge forward with one leg moving under the kettlebells, catching the bells in the overhead lockout position. End with arms straight overhead, front knee straight ahead and over the ankle. Do 8-12 reps, alternating legs each time.
