How to do the Double Kettlebell Clean and Press Exercise

Hey, this is Callie Durbrow from

I’m here today to do a quick video for my friend Rick Kaselj about my favorite exercise and one of my favorite ways to do it. This a great exercise that you can do with a minimal space.

CLICK HERE to watch  the YouTube video.

All you need is two kettlebells. You can do it with one if you only have one.

This is the double/singular kettlebell clean and press exercise. One of the best exercises for your entire body, core, legs, shoulders and all those areas that women want to make look awesome.

You’re going to take what is called the density approach.

#1 – Double/Singular Kettlebell Clean & Press

Start in a back hinge position and swing back using your hamstrings and your glutes. Come up and snap the bells up to your chest with minimal swing – just stand and snap. You are going to reset your abs, drive the weight overhead and swing back through. That is one rep.

The whole time my abs are engaged when I’m swinging and when I am standing.  This makes it double the work.

Do as many as you can do in 30 seconds,, rest for 30 seconds, and hit it again.

Double Kettlebell Clean and Press Exercise

You’re going to set the clock for 30 seconds and do as many reps as you can, then rest for 30 seconds. Then you’re going to come back and try to beat the reps with the same weight. If you are doing this with a single kettlebell, just switch arms halfway through.

Try to beat that score by one or two reps every time. You can do 3 sets as part of a workout, or you can do up to 5-10 sets as your entire workout; 10 total minutes.

Again, this is Callie Durbrow and I just want to share this video with you for my friend Rick and all his followers.
