Let's Walk With Kettlebells

The Kettlebell overhead walk challenge is another important variation to be added for the members who wish to start off with Kettlebell training.

The biggest challenge initially seen while lifting the bells is managing the cannon ball which moves around the wrist when you do clean or pressing movements. The shoulder joint does not have the stability to hold the displaced weight for a long amount of time. The Kettlebell shape gives a challenge to the shoulder joint for stability, most importantly which in-turn helps dumbbell or barbell overhead pressing movements. We will see the importance of walking with Kettlebells in this article.

HOW TO DO IT?

    The Overhead Walk
  • With a shoulder-width stance, clear the bells on the chest and press it overhead (cannon ball should be behind the hand).
  • After Kettlebell press, ensure the thumbs are pointing back with elbows locked.
  • Hand should be close to ear and aligned.
  • Hold the bells to stabilize it for 30 seconds or 1 min.
  • Once you get confidence of holding and stabilizing, you can start walking.
