The Kettle Bell Shoulder Press is an upper body exercise that primarily targets the shoulders, but also works the triceps. This is a compound exercise which is well suited to intermediate lifters.




  • Perform seated or standing up.
  • Lift a kettle bell up to head height with your arm at 90 degrees out to your side.
  • Press the kettle bell up above your head, keeping your elbow out to the sides. Slowly lower the kettle bell back to the starting position and repeat.
  • Keep your shoulder blades pinned back throughout. Avoid overarching your back by keeping your abs contracted throughout.
