The Bottom Up Kettlebell Shoulder Press

 

This is probably one of my favourite kettlebell exercises when training shoulders as it requires the individual to stabilize the kettlebell upside down through their hand, wrist and upper limb.  It is much harder than it looks and I would suggest starting with a smaller sized bell and then developing this.  Another great variation on this for overhead work is to press the bell bottom up and lock out at the top point of the movement and maintain it is this position for a set period of time i.e. 30-60 seconds. This gives the individual the option to train either the closed packed shoulder position that is commonly taught in powerlifting, or it allows the individual to push the weight up and away from the body and have the scapular pushing away from the thoracic cage as is commonly taught in gymnastics.
