The double kettlebell shoulder press is a very effective upper body strengthening exercise that works the shoulders through a good range of motion and increases shoulder stability.

Teaching Points

  1. Start with the kettlebells in a strong ‘double racked’ position with the feet well grounded.
  2. Press the kettlebells up vertically, keep the forearm vertical and the wrist fixed throughout.
  3. Straighten the arms with the palms of the hand facing forwards.
  4. Stabilise the shoulders and contract the triceps so the arm is straight.
  5. Lower the kettlebells under control and pull them back into the ‘racked’ position.
