Technique

  • Stand holding a kettle bell in one hand with your palm facing forwards.
  • Lift the kettle bell in a slow and controlled manner by squeezing your biceps and keeping your elbow tucked in by your side.
  • Slowly lower the kettle bell until your arm is almost straight and then immediately lift it again – don’t fully straighten your arm and lock it out or you will release the tension on your biceps.
