General And Specifics

  • it is a great warm-up kettlebell exercise
  • here, especially the core is required, because it keeps the body upright and keeps you from swinging
  • additionally, the flexibility of the shoulders is improved

Starting Position

  • grasp a kettlebell
  • encompass the horns with both hands
  • your feet are shoulder-wide away
  • posture is upright
  • knees slightly bent

Correct Execution

  • brace your core
  • choose a direction, then let the weight rotate around your body in a wide bow
  • if you choose to rotate to the right side, the left hand unhands the weight in front of your body
  • give it over into the left hand behind your back and encompass the horn at its side again- this eases up the delivery
  • go on rotating, until the weight is in front of your body again
  • always hold the kettlebell with tight grip, to that it cannot slip away to the side
  • do several rotations
  • switch direction after one set (about 45-90 seconds) and do the same number of reps
