Then, tensing your upper body, press the bell straight up keeping your arm close to the body and avoiding your elbow moving out to the side. Finally reverse the motion, returning to the start position.

Repetitions: 10-15 (each arm)

Sets: 2-4

Another great Kettlebell exercise, with this one concentrating on your upper body areas of the chest, arms and upper back. Above all, keep the exercise slow, deliberate and controlled with your Abdominals braced. You can also save time and perform this exercise with two Kettlebells simultaneously, one for each hand, if you have two of identical weight.
