Kettlebell Lunge Press Exercise Combines The Lunge Movement With a Press

The kettlebell lunge press is a multi-functional movement that targets numerous muscles in your upper and lower body. The lunge is a fantastic movement but when you add a press to it, it becomes dynamic. This kettlebell exercise takes a lot of co-ordination and you need to ensure our posture is standing upright and that your knee is not pushing over your toes. This exercise builds a strong core.
