Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Medium

Impact Level: Low

Target Body Parts: abs, shoulders


Start laying on your back with your knees bent your feet flat on the floor. Hold the kettlebell in your left hand with the ball on the back of your arm. Extend your arm straight above you. Keeping your lower back pressed down into the floor, tuck your chin to your chest, draw your belly button down and contract your abdominals to roll your upper spine up off the floor. At the same time, twist from your core to push the kettlebell towards your right knee. This is the top position. From here lower yourself back to the floor by curling your spine down from bottom to top, as your head touches the floor.
