Hi, this is Stephany with Elevate Fitness, and today we're going to talk about arm exercises with the kettlebell. Now, the reason why the kettlebell can be such a beneficial workout is because instead of using two weights, you're actually using one; so you could focus on your movement. Another thing that a kettlebell workout provides is an offset sense of gravity. And what it is is because you are using one dumbbell, you have to choose the rest of your body to control and stabilize the movement and that's what makes more of your muscles work instead of just one or two muscles at a time. All you do is lift the kettlebell up and down and you try to maintain good posture. So, keep your shoulders back, keep your chest up, drawing your stomach in towards the spine and you're moving your forearms up and down. If you wanted to switch, you can alternate bicep curling and then alternating to the other arm. Another beneficial workout that you can do is tricep extension. So, leaning forward, you bring your arm close to the torso and you just kick back. So, the, the bell comes all the way back and comes all the way in. Again, you want to focus on keeping your shoulders back, keeping your chest up, drawing in the stomach to the spine as you extend your arm and bring it in. A really good workout for the shoulders and also good cardio workout would be kettlebell swings. This is when you bring the bell through the legs up at shoulder level, swinging back and forth. This really gets multiple muscles working, but it's really good for your shoulders and your tris. And you can alternate from one arm to the other. This is Stephany with Elevate Fitness, and we just talked about arm exercises with the kettlebell. Get lifted.
