Kettlebell Windmills Overview

 Some exercises can be very fast and require many reps to impact on your fitness. However, kettlebell windmill success is all about slowing down and being steady. This activity is not for the faint of heart. However, it's not easy to do.

Although it might seem difficult to adjust to the movements of the windmill, once you do, your core strength and shoulders will be stronger, and you'll be able to increase mobility and flexibility in your hips, lower back, and legs.

How to Do it

  1. Start in a standing position with your feet shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent. 
  2. Hold a kettlebell in each hand at shoulder height, palms facing forward. 
  3. From here, press the kettlebells overhead, straightening your arms as you go. 
  4. Return to the starting position and repeat.

Exercise Tips

  1. Keep your toes turned outwards and the lifter placing weight into the right hip.
  2. Keep the back of your left hand in contact with the left leg as you move down. 
  3. Place your weights on the hip muscles and make sure to keep your right leg completely straight. No bent knees.  
  4. Feel the stretch and control in your abs, obliques, glutes, and hamstring muscles.
