The benefits of the kettlebell one arm military press

  1. The kettlebell one-arm military press focuses on the shoulder muscles, namely the deltoids and trapezius, which helps to increase strength and stability in the shoulders.
  2. Balancing a kettlebell overhead necessitates core stability, therefore this exercise also works the core muscles, such as the abdominals and obliques.
  3. This exercise simulates real-life actions like lifting goods above, making it a useful workout that can help with daily tasks.
  4. Working one arm at a time promotes unilateral strength development, which helps to resolve muscular imbalances and asymmetries.

Exercise Tips:

  • Keep your chest up, shoulders down and back, and your knees slightly bent during the action.
  • Press the kettlebell overhead by completely extending your arm and not locking out your elbow. Keep your wrist straight and your core engaged.
  • Lower the kettlebell slowly and steadily to shoulder height, fighting gravity and using the shoulder muscles eccentrically.
  • Throughout the action, focus on activating the shoulder muscles and core while avoiding excessive lower back arching or shoulder shrugging.
  • Maintain appropriate posture and use your core muscles to keep your body steady during the action.
