Kettlebell abs standing is a great way to strengthen your lower abs without doing the traditional sit-up or tricep dip exercises. These kettlebell abs standing exercises are a good option for those who struggle with lower back pain or don’t have access to an exercise mat.
Plank Pull Through
Using one arm at a time, start in a high plank position with wrists under shoulders and a kettlebell placed next to your left hand. Maintain this position while drawing your shoulder blades back and down to prevent hunching over.
Draw the kettlebell diagonally across your body and overhead to your right, then reverse the movement. Complete 2 sets of 8 to 10 repetitions on each side.
The Kettlebell Exercises for Killer Abs
Straight-arm Plank With a Kettlebell
This is an excellent core strength and anti-rotational movement. It can be done from a standing position with a single leg in front or from a sit-up.
Aim for 20-30 seconds per set, but you can do this as long as you’re able to keep your hips and torso squared forward.
Swing Your Bell From Side to Side
This is a very challenging abs exercise, but it’s easy to do when you focus on keeping your core engaged and compressing your abdomen as you move the weight up and down slowly.
The slam is a great exercise to train your abs because it requires you to brace your core, but also because the slams are very aggressive and can help to develop your upper abs. It is a great exercise to do when you have a kettlebell at home or in the gym.
