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

6. Kettlebell Goblet Squat

How?

1. Stand with your legs slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, clasping a kettlebell in each hand in front of your chest with palms facing each other.

2. Bend your knees and lower yourself into a squat, keeping the kettlebells in the same position and ensuring you don’t round your back by tensing your glutes throughout.

3. Drive back up and repeat.

Why?

When it comes to simple fat-burning, it’s hard to beat the squat.

As one of the royal compound moves (alongside the deadlift and the bench press), the kettlebell goblet squat builds huge lower-body strength and more powerful glutes that can be transferred to your deadlifts and your running technique.

7. Kettlebell Farmer’s Walk

How?

1. Hold two kettlebells by your side.

2. Keep your arms strong and walk short, quick steps as fast as possible.

3. Turn around and walk back.

Why?

Ideal for building grip and plugging onto the end of a tough workout, farmer’s walks also pack heavy-duty muscle onto your upper-back while fighting lower-back pain and being a useful conditioning tool and fat-loss. There’s nothing a kettlebell farmer’s walk can’t do.
