How to do Kettlebell Crunch

Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Easy

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 both hands by the handle. 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. As you raise, keep your arms extended and push the kettlebell up as high as you can in the air. 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.
