Around-The-Body Kettlebell Pass Is Used As A Warm-Up
Improves Core and Grip Strength
INSTRUCTIONS: Stand with feet slightly wider than hip-width. Knees remain straight but not locked. Keeps abs firm, shoulders square and neutral. Grip the weight firmly as you pass it around your body. Hips do not move side-to-side or swivel. Begin with a slow pace and increase the pace, as long as you have full control over the exercise.
INSTRUCTIONS continued: Move the weight to the right for several rounds and then repeat on the left. The minimum weight available on kettlebells is 5 lbs. Be sure your grip is strong enough to manage that amount of weight.
VARIATIONS: Change your pace to either slower or quicker. During faster movement be sure to maintain proper form as given in the instructions. For added challenge move the weight once to the right and then once to the left. Continue this pattern for several rounds.
