Whenever you press, extend or straighten the arm you use your tricep muscles. So Push Ups, for example, are a classic exercise for developing the triceps.
If you are not using the Push Up in your training then I highly recommend that you start not only for your triceps but for your chest, abs, glutes, shoulders and back. Kettle bell Overhead Press Exercise classic overhead press can be performed with most pieces of equipment but it feels wonderful with a kettle bell.
The Push Press uses the body to help pop the kettle bell out of the most difficult part of the movement. When the kettle bell is at the bottom your arm is at a mechanical disadvantage so by using the legs slightly you are able to give it a little boost out of this sticking point.
If you want to really focus on the arms and shoulders then the Tall Kneeling Press will take the lower half of the body out of the equation. A great exercise for developing pure pressing strength.
You will need to keep your Glutes squeezed tight to ensure you don’t lose alignment and stress the lower back. Have fun with this exercise by pressing from different sides with different legs forwards.
You will find the natural cross body, right arm and left leg forwards, the easiest variation. Kettle bell regular row superb exercise for working into the back of the body and core muscles as well as conditioning the biceps.
Good form and technique is required to avoid excessive momentum and to ensure that the back is kept safe and flat. A similar exercise to the regular row above except even more emphasis is placed on the arms.
Isometric exercise positions like this one are especially demanding on the full body and require good concentration. If you cannot hold a good front plank for at least 60 seconds then I would focus on that first and practice the other kettle bell exercises for the arms listed above before using this one.
A good set of heavy kettle bell cleans will certainly overload the biceps and improve the look of the arms. In addition to the arm muscle activation the Clean and Press also targets almost every muscle in the body making it an excellent full body conditioning exercise and superb for fat loss.
Kettle bell thruster exerciseSimilar to the Clean and Press, the Squat and Press is a huge full body exercise that targets most muscles of the body. You won’t get as much bicep activation with this exercise as the Clean and Press but you will find it more cardiovascular.
Again very little bicep activation but great for the triceps and the rest of the body, especially the buttocks and legs. Kettle bell Sit and Press Exercise sit and press exercise is a powerful shoulder and tricep exercise that also works into the core muscles.
It is very important when performing this exercise to lower the kettle bell to the start position slowly. The slower the lowering please of the sit and press the more core activation you will receive.
Kettle bell exercises are based on movement patterns and so target the whole body rather than a select few muscles including the triceps and biceps. You can also find above an idea of how to perform a kettle bell arm workout.
To develop tone and muscle I’d recommend working on a repetition range of between 8 and 15. The challenge is to find the correct sized kettle bell for each exercise so that you fatigue during this repetition range.
Even though kettle bell training should be focused on movement patterns and not particular muscles the movements still put a lot of stimuli and stress on the muscle and therefore promote growth. Kettle bells are great to use for your arms because it’s challenging, helps you build muscle and burns fat.
For each exercise our personal trainers recommend trying 3 sets of 10-12 reps, however, this will be dependent on your fitness level and experience. The kettle bell clean and press is a fantastic total body exercise.
It’s great for conditioning sessions and increases movement, stability, and strength with the body. Drive your hips forward while keeping your back straight.

Overhead tricep extensions are great for bodybuilders and anyone who is looking to build muscle. With a kettle bell, it focuses on the triceps, lats and the medial head section.
This exercise will help you improve your stability and greater muscle activation. The standard kettle bell overhead press is a suitable exercise for increasing strength endurance.
Similar to the clean and press (exercise number 1) but without the squat motion. Make sure your legs are locked and the weight of the kettle bell to be supported by your lower body.
The kettle bell lateral raise is a suitable exercise to work out your traps and deltoid. This exercise is great for strengthening the area and is also easy enough for beginners to try.
Anyone who is looking to put on big mass in their arms and upper body should look to kettle bell training as a way to develop a stable shoulder complex,” adds Samantha Carmen, CSS, a certified kettle bell instructor and personal trainer in NYC and founder of mindfulmeathead.com. These 10 workouts, designed by Brooks and Carmen, combine kettle bell and body weight work to maximize results.
Be sure to warm up before diving in, especially joint mobility exercises such as walkouts, scorpions, and thread-the-needle side planks. “I highly recommend performing a few lightweight Turkish get-ups (each side) to tune up total body dynamic mobility and stability,” Carmen says.
After the press, slowly lower your arm down to the racked position (where it is at the top of a clean), and then do the 20-to-40 meter carry. Repeat the circuit with the same arm for 2 sets, then switch sides.
Bottoms-up position for the press is even harder to control, thanks to the shape of the kettle bell. Again, rest as needed and for 1 to 2 minutes between circuits, and only do as much reps as you can sustain with good form.
Do the body rows from a Tax or Smith bar, set as low as you can control for the minimum rep count. Repeat the rep cycle for 3 to 5 total rounds (do yourself a favor and start with three), resting between sets up to 2 minutes.
The Turkish get-up is really a full-body, core-heavy move, but man does it challenge the shoulder stability to keep that kettle bell straight overhead the whole time. *Mixed-grip means that you should hold the bar with one hand overhand and the other underhand.
Though most people are doubtful about how kettle bells can actually improve body fitness but that is the case reality. The best part about using kettle bells for biceps exercise is that you can either go heavy or light depending upon your requirements.
