Exercises for the Kettlebell Chest

Most kettlebell athletes like to perform full-body exercises or activities that concentrate on the upper and lower bodies (which still include full-body exercises). Simply include a few kettlebell chest movements in your upper, lower, or full-body workouts to guarantee that your chest is getting the attention it needs, as many total-body kettlebell exercises don't engage the chest enough to make it bigger or stronger.

The workouts below are solid examples of how to arrange a push workout, which incorporates your shoulders and triceps, or a chest-only workout.

Last Verdict

You can use a single kettlebell or doubles for any of the above exercises. Just make sure you strike both sides equally while using a single kettlebell. This will lengthen your workout a little, but since one side was taking a break between sets, your rest period shouldn't be too long (5 seconds is enough).

Kettlebell exercises for the chest are a great concept and can help you discover more fun kettlebell moves. The chest muscles benefit from the forceful movement that many kettlebell routines offer.

Kettlebells are so much more than simply the kettlebell swing (as good as it is). For the majority of lifters, adding some kettlebell chest workouts to bodyweight exercises, dumbbell exercises, and barbell exercises is a smart choice.
