The kettlebell bottoms-up press is a great way to challenge the stability in the shoulder, and it builds grip, wrist, and forearm strength. But to get the most out it, you need to do it with a reverse grip.

Reverse Grip Kettlebell Press

Reversing the grip on the kettlebell press allows stress to be applied to the muscle fibers in the pecs, triceps, shoulders, and lats without loading up the weight, and it promotes immediate sensory and neuromuscular feedback.

  1. Rotate your wrists where you're looking at your palm, point your elbow straight, and lock the arm as if you were performing the regular bottoms-up press.
  2. Maintain a firm grip and press straight up in the air while keeping the body tight.

This is very effective for training the triceps, chest, shoulders, and lats.
