CHEST & CORE!

CHEST & CORE!

Burn out the chest & hit your core with this simple tweak to a classic!

_

The Chest Press with a single kettlebell is a staple in my training circuits. The simple act of being on a bench with feet on the end of the bench, chest pressing a kettlebell can yield tremendous results.

_

This movements will hit your core, triceps, & chest. It also really targets the lats.

In the video I am doing 30s R/L with a 24kg. The offset load of a KB changes the feel of a chest press & I feel you can use less weight for same physiological effect of putting on muscle.

_

Work to keep your lats tight, elbows in & shoulders square with the upper body in line on the bench. One way I know I am working with too large a KB is if my torso (core) begins to shift or bend.

_

Always make sure to breath while you perform the movement. Breath into the belly on the way down & forcefully exhale on the way up.

_

With all chest press I always work to pull the KB into the down portion & think about driving the KB away from me as I press.

_

Are you looking for better ways to train fundamental movement patterns?

Circuit Shred will be launching later this month. This style of chest press is a staple in the program.  Building muscle and shredding off fat!
