Kettlebell Russian Twists Overview

The Russian twist is a common exercise that takes a strong place in ab workouts. It targets the oblique and gives your abs a defined shape. If you are looking for any workout move to get the perfect curves, you know what to rely on.

The exercise also plays a key role in working on your core. It develops your abdominals' muscles, strengthens your core muscles, and improves your posture. You can add more challenges to exercise with the help of a kettlebell or a dumbbell.

How to Do It

  • Start by sitting on the floor, bending your knees and feet flat on the ground.
  • Lean back so that your upper torso is at an angle of 45-degree with the floor.
  • Keep your back straight. Position your hands in front of your chest and engage your core.
  • If you use a dumbbell or kettlebell, hold it at the center.
  • Lift your feet off the ground.
  • Rotate your arms to one side. Go all out and move as far as you can.
  • Do the same on the opposite side.

Kettlebell Russian Twists Tips

  • Lift your feet off the ground to make exercise more challenging.
  • Hold the kettlebell to work on your oblique. Make sure that you do not drop the weight at any point.
  • Your back and shoulders should be in one place throughout the exercise.
