One Arm Bottom-Up Kettlebell Floor Press

Going bottoms-up means you’ll have to drop the weight. The stability isn’t there to press heavy weight. But, that’s also the magic of this lift and wh I like to add it to your workouts.

The instability created by the bottoms-up position forces the stabilize muscles of your shoulders to work harder compared to a barbell.
