Kettlebell Chest Press

The kettlebell chest press is a variation of the traditional bench press. Stabilizing the kettlebell throughout the press builds additional strength in the chest, triceps, and delts.

    Lower the kettlebells slowly to the sides or your chest, tucking your elbows close to your body so they create a 45-degree angle in the bottom position. Pause, then press the kettlebells back to the starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Keep the elbows close to your sides throughout the exercise.
  • Keep your wrists straight with the kettlebells resting on the back of your arms throughout the movement.
