Firm Abs using Kettlebells

By Chris Rivers

Kettle bell training is unique in the sense that you are continuously moving with a weight at a good speed so you get a cardiovascular workout as well as a strength and muscle building session. But unlike conventional training methods; doing this type of exercise constantly engages the core which ultimately give you rock hard abs with continual use.

Also there are many abdominal exercises that you can do with a kettlebell and they can be combined with any other routine you may be doing or as a standalone workout. Here are some of the fundamental abdominal exercises that you can do with your KB.

Russian twists: By far the most well known of all the actual abdominal moves, the RT's undoubtedly are a great exercise and they are also easy to begin with. Sat on a floor or gym step, knees bent slightly and tilting back holding the bell at the horns one twists to one side and puts the bell down but not letting go of the horns; then lifting it over your legs again the movement is repeated back and forth. It's a fantastic exercise working your arms and also shoulders. You must remember to engage the abs enough to feel them taut before beginning.

Overhead sit-ups: Laying absolutely flat forearms extended above your head and holding the bell on the horns, raise the KB up for the sky; then the moment it's directly over your head lift your head and upper spine area of the ground as if performing a regular crunch and hold for a count of 3, slowly move back to the start; repeat.

1/2 get ups: Obviously it's the very first half from the TGU. Lying on your floor with the bell one side, roll on your side and take the KB within your hands and press upward with one arm, then all in a singular movement move your back up of the floor so you are sat straight up making sure you keep the KB straight above your head arm locked constantly, then slowly resume to start position and also swap sides and repeat the process.

These are only a few of the many abdominal exercises you might include within your kettle bell program, you can try doing them for a fixed amount off reps or specific time frame. Also you may do the aforementioned for 15 minutes making it a full abdominal kettlebell workout routine.

Russian twists x 1 min

Overhead sit-ups x 1 min

  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  16. Many bodybuilders make this same mistake, and take the hard road.
    Going from skinny to muscle depends on how you
    approach and execute your workouts as well as how you manage your nutrition and rest.
    The reason is that too often people consume too much protein at one
    time and most of it goes to waste.
