How to Do a Kettlebell Orbit Core Exercise

Incinerate Calories and Strengthen Your Core With This Simple Kettlebell Move

It's no secret that kettlebell exercises torch calories. They're also incredible arm and core strengtheners, and when used in a deadlift, can give you a tighter tush and shape your whole body.

This around-the-world move, also called an "orbit," can work your obliques, strengthen your core, and tone your arms. Focus on form, and start with a light kettlebell until you get the hang of it.

  • Stand with feet hip-distance apart and arms extended slightly out to your side. Hold a kettlebell in your left hand at one corner of the horn.
  • In a fluid motion, swing it behind you and reach your right hand back to grab it on the other side of the horn.
  • Keep the motion fluid as you swing it to the front of you and grab it with your left hand. It should feel like you are making the kettlebell orbit your waist.
  • Repeat 10 times, then reverse and repeat 10 times.
