Kettlebell Around The Body Pass

This simple exercise is a variation on a couple of the other ones I’ve written about before. The Kettlebell “Around The Body Pass” is suitable for anybody, and makes a good first exercise for beginner’s developing a new routine.

If you want to add something simple to your routine, either as a “warming up” exercise, or just for a bit of variety, then here’s what you can do.

How To Perform The Kettlebell Around The Body Pass

  • Stand with your feet apart, level with your hips. Bend your knees slightly.
  • Hold your Kettlebell in front of you, at waist height. Start off holding it with both hands.
  • Let go of one hand, and bring both hands behind your back.
  • When the kettlebell is back in the middle (behind you), pass it over to the other hand, and bring it back round to the front.
  • When the Kettlebell has completed one circuit, that is one rep.

Do 10 reps, then switch direction.

Avoid moving your hips while you do this, and keep your knees bent and in one position. The idea is to keep your core tight while doing the exercise. Not only will your arms get a decent workout, your core and abs will get some too. Another example of a kettlebell exercise working on multiple parts of the body at once.

As usual, here is a video of the exercise in action.

If you really want to get some great results, I suggest you put this exercise together into a routine. You can check out more of our exercises to do this.

One last thing, remember when you exercise to do something suitable to your level. Correct form is the most important thing, so practice slowly, or using a bag that doesn’t way much until you feel comfortable performing the exercise for real. I often practice in slow motion one or two times, using a mirror and an example video like the one above.

Ok, until next time, Enjoy your exercise
