7 of the Best Kettlebell Exercises to Build Muscle, According to Experts

5. Kettlebell Pistol Squat


1. Hold one kettlebell with both hands just under your chin.

2. Lift one leg off the floor and squat down with the other.

3. Drive through the heel and bring yourself back up to standing position, without letting your leg touch the floor.

4. Lower back down and repeat.


Functional and an easy gym brag, the kettlebell pistol squat is the king of mobility moves.

Ideal for oiling the stiff joints of desk-jockeys and gym bros, it’ll also set your Instagram feed ablaze. Helping you master the holy trinity of fitness — stability, strength and mobility — it’ll challenge your core (there’s more to a six-pack than crunches and planks, after all) and will build sportive-worthy quads while increasing balance.
