Few exercises engage joint stabilizers as well as Bottoms-Up Kettlebell Carry. This exercise engages shoulder and wrist stabilizers. Muscle recruitment is also high in back muscles that stabilize the spine as well as deep abdominal muscles—both used for power and support in sports.
- Hold Kettlebells (bottoms up) with elbows at or just below shoulder height.
- Engage core muscles as if about to take a punch in the gut. Concentrate on tightening mid-abdominal muscles plus muscles around sides and into low back.
- Walk about 20 yards while engaging wrist, shoulder, and core muscles.
