The Kettle Bell Skullcrusher is an upper body exercise that primarily targets the triceps. This is an isolation exercise which is well suited to beginner lifters.




  • Start lying on your back and with both hands, hold a kettle bell directly above your shoulders, with your palms facing each other.
  • Bend your arms at the elbow, lowering the kettle bell until it’s behind your head, then extend your arms back to the starting position by squeezing your triceps.
  • Keep your elbows tucked in at all times.
