#1 – Double/Singular Kettlebell Clean & Press
Start in an athletic position with your knees bent and your hips hinged to lean your upper body forward. Pick up a kettlebell in each hand, and swing them through your legs and back, engaging your core and squeezing your glutes and hamstrings. As you swing the kettlebells forward through your legs, thrust your hips forward. Swing your arms up and bend your elbows to bring the kettlebells to shoulder-height. Raise to an upright standing position as you press the kettlebells overhead. Reverse the movement to return to the starting position and repeat the sequence of movements. Keep your core engaged throughout the entire exercise.
Do as many repetitions as you can in 30 seconds. Rest for 30 seconds, then do as many repetitions as you can for the next 30 seconds.
Double Kettlebell Clean and Press Exercise
If you are doing this with a single kettlebell, just switch arms halfway through your 30 second set. Also feel free to substitute dumbbells for the kettlebells. Try to beat your score by one or two reps every time, but still focus on maintaining proper form. You can do 3 sets as part of a workout, or you can do up to 5-10 sets as your entire workout. This single exercise works every part of your body.
