Aaron Vyvial from Texas Kettlebell Academy, explains and demonstrates a great kettlebell movement which can be performed by beginners and experts alike.
The Kettlebell Lunge can be performed with a few variations, it is a great movement which actually works a lot of different muscles as opposed to just the legs. Start by bringing the kettlebell up to the 'guard position', shown in the video, then step forward to a right angle.
How to Lunge:
- Bring the kettlebell up to the guard position and bring your elbows into your body.
- Position your feet right under your shoulders.
- Step forward and then lunge to a right angle, then step back to the starting position.
Make sure to keep your back straight, your shoulders down and your elbow in.

There are a number of variations you can perform with the kettlebell lunge, you can choose to step forward, step backward, hold the bell closer to your chest, rest on your back and even use one or two kettlebells. Just like any type of workout, you can choose heavier or lighter weights and do higher or lower reps depending on your goals.
