Kettlebell Knee Push Up (Close Grip)

  • Beginner
  • Kettlebell
  • Chest · Triceps

Setup instructions

1) Put the kettlebell on the floor and place your hands on it.

2) Start on your knees and lean forward onto the floor. Extend your arms but keep a slight bend in your elbows - aim for your hands to be directly under your chest. You should be in a plank position with your knees down - keep the core tight and tuck the hips in.

Perform instructions

1) Slowly lower your chest to the ground - make sure your elbows are behind your shoulders.

2) Pause at the bottom, then 'push up' (think as if you're pushing the ground away) until you're back in the plank.

3) Repeat.
