Stomach Exercise With Kettlebells For Beginners

Spread the love

Stomach exercise with kettlebell | Strong And Fit can be a great way to improve your abdominals, but you need to make sure you’re performing them correctly. That’s why we asked Roxie Jones, author of “Kettlebell Body” and kettlebell instructor, to share some of her favorite stomach exercises with kettlebells for beginners.

Is 12kg kettlebell too light?

One of the most fundamental core movements to learn is the standard swing, which requires proper form and balance and stabilizer muscle engagement. To start, stand with feet shoulder-width apart and hold a kettlebell in front of you.

Maintaining a slight bend in your knee, lean forward and grasp the kettlebell with both hands, explosively driving your hips forward as you swing it up to your torso. Repeat for 10 to 15 reps.

The weighted ‘chop’ movement is another effective abdominal exercise that involves stabilizing your hips and lower back, says Duncan. This move is especially challenging if you’re not used to a half-kneeling position and need to work on keeping your core engaged throughout.

This ‘one-arm’ variation is a little more difficult than the standard swing. Grasp the kettlebell with your free hand and twist from side to side to bring the weight behind you, getting momentum as you move.

Once you get the hang of this kettlebell abs exercise, try it with both hands for more variety. You can also do this move with your feet on the ground to increase the challenge, if you’re more advanced.
