Kettlebell Ab Pullover Crunch Overview

The ab muscles can be strengthened with the kettlebell ab pullover workout. The move is descended from the family of plank moves.

As an anti-extension abdominal workout, the kettlebell ab pullover requires you to maintain spinal stability while progressively lowering the kettlebell overhead.

How to Do It?

  • Holding a kettlebell by the horns, position yourself supine with your legs bent 90 degrees at the hips and knees and your arms reaching upward.
  • As you exhale, lower the kettlebell overhead while keeping the hips contracted.
  • Once you've completed the required amount of total repetitions, return to your starting position and repeat.

Tips for Kettlebell Ab Pullover Crunch

  • Breathing should not be held in, as you shouldn't be using it to make up for instability. Learn to keep your stance while moving without needing to breathe.
  • Move methodically and slowly. Instead of finishing repetitions, the objective is to control the given space.
  • Make sure to breathe out as the arms rise overhead. The intention is to keep the ribs down and avoid hyperextending the lower back.
  • Like ab wheel rollouts, start with what you have and gradually expand over time. You might not have a full range of motion at first.
