Best 13 Exercises With Kettlebells

by Valerie Zeller

Kettlebell Deadlift

The Kettlebell Deadlift is a total lower-body strength movement that uses a ball-shaped weight with a single handle. This deadlift move is designed to build strength in your glutes and hamstrings.

Kettlebell Swing

The Kettlebell Swing is a relatively low-impact, full-body move that involves bending down and dipping a kettlebell between your legs and lifting back up. It might sound relatively simple, but maintaining proper posture and positioning can be challenging. The exercise is great for conditioning, as it develops hamstring, hip, glute and abdominal strength.

Kettlebell Windmill

The Kettlebell Windmill is a strength training movement that utilizes a bell-shaped weight with a single handle. The move is designed to work the back, abs and obliques, as well as help improve mobility throughout the body.

Kettlebell Snatch

The Kettlebell Snatch is a foundational kettlebell exercise that serves as a building block for kettlebell strength training. Unlike a rigid dumbbell, the ball-shaped weight has a single handle that makes it easier to create and control momentum and carry out three-dimensional movements.
