5 Best Kettlebell Ab Exercises

November 8, 2010

In this video you will discover the 5 best kettlebell exercises for training your abdominals. For all the exercises you will be working your abs just as hard if not harder, than what you would be doing with regular crunches.

The first exercise is Windmills. So, with the KB up overhead, keep your knees straight, brace your abs and lower your opposite hand down to the ground while keeping your eye on the KB up overhead. Be sure not to let your back round. Do all reps for one side and then switch arms.

The next exercise is Kettlebell Swings. This exercise is a very important exercise for your abs in that they work your abs the way they were meant to be worked by stabilizing them. So, with your arms outstretched below, grab the KB with both hands, and using your only your hips and your legs drive the KB forward. Your arms will just be along for the ride in this exercise. Keep your upper and lower body braced at all times, while maintaining a flat back.

Another great exercise is the Around the World Kettlebell exercise. For this one, you want to brace your abs and squeeze your glutes at all times. Next, take the KB behind your back, switch hands and bring the KB around front, handing off to the other hand in a continuous motion. You want to maintain an upright torso and go as fast as possible throughout. Once you have done all the reps one way, switch and go the other way. You will be resisting rotation which will work your abs extra hard.

Kettlebell Renegade Rows is another excellent abdominal exercise. The big misconception about this exercise is that it is an upper body exercise, which in part is true. However, once you remove one of the pillars of your arm, your abs have to work extra hard to make sure your torso doesn’t rotate. So in doing that, you will have to keep your abs and glutes nice and tight. If you haven’t done this exercise in a while, then you can use a wide base of support with your feet to make it a little easier.

The last kettlebell exercise for your abs is called a Halo. So, holding the KB with both hands at chest height bring it back behind and around your head and back to the start. Once the KB is in front, switch and go the opposite way. Again, these exercises all come back to resisting rotation and bracing the abs.

Those are the 5 best kettlebell exercises for training your abdominals that you can do at home, in a small space without ever having to do another single crunch again.
