Single Arm Overhead Press Isometrics – 90/90, Upside Down Kettlebell

  • HOW: Get set-up seated holding a kettlebell upside-down. Try to keep your knuckles facing up the entire time as well as a neutral wrist, with your elbow directly below your hand. It is ok for small wrist motion to occur, the goal is to resist that motion. See the video for additional tips and instructions as well as a visual of the exercise.
  • FEEL: You should feel the muscles on top of your forearm working as well as other muscles in your forearm and hand to help with gripping the kettlebell. Your shoulder and arm muscles will be working as well, especially if you progress the exercise by holding the weight higher. You may feel tension on the outside of your elbow as well.
  • COMPENSATION: Do not lose wrist position. Try to limit excessive motion of the kettlebell. Do not shrug your shoulder.
