How to Strengthen Glutes With a Kettlebell

Get Lifted: Swinging Kettlebell Squat Lunge

I'm all jazzed about kettlebells lately, and if you're looking for an exercise to use this unique piece of equipment, here's one to try. It's sure to tone your thighs and tush and give you sculpted shoulders.

For tips on how to do this move keep reading.

  • Stand with your feet wider than hips-width apart, toes slightly pointing out. Squat down and hold a kettlebell with both hands between your legs. Make sure your back is flat and your abs are engaged.
  • As you inhale, press into your feet and explode up, stepping your left leg behind you. Either plant your entire foot flat on the floor or land on the ball of your foot. As you lunge, swing the kettlebell up over your shoulders.
  • Slowly exhale and step your left foot forward, coming back into the low squat. Maintain control of the kettlebell as you swing it up and down.
  • This counts as one rep. Complete three sets of 12 to 15 reps on each side.
