Kettlebell Bottoms Up Clean

Primary Muscle Group:  Biceps

Other Muscle Groups Worked in This Exercise: Upper Back, Forearms

Breathing: Breath out as you start the exercise movement, and breath in as you move back to the start position.

Execution: Hold the kettlebell by the handle while standing, and swing the kettlebell back and then up while curling the kettlebell up. The bottom of the the kettlebell should be facing up toward the ceiling. This exercise builds forearm and bicep strength. Depending on the weight you will really need to grip and squeeze the kettlebell handle very tightly while you are balancing the kettlebell upside down to ensure the kettlebell does not roll toward your head or off to the side. The harder you squeeze the more you activate your forearms in the movement.
