Kettlebell For Abs Exercises

When it comes to sculpting your midsection, nothing is more effective than kettlebell workouts. Not only do these exercises sculpt your core, but they also work the entire body and are highly challenging.

How quickly do you see results from kettlebells?

One of our favorite kettlebell for abs | Strong And Fit moves for the abs is the plank pull-through. It targets your shoulders, arms, and back while also targeting the stabilizer muscles of your core, says Betina Duncan, our December Trainer of the Month.

The move begins in a standard plank position with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart. Grip a kettlebell by your right hand and slide it outside your left leg as you push through with your left foot to come to an upright position.

Keep your hips square to the ground and your core engaged throughout the movement. Do 10-12 reps then switch sides.


The windmill is another great exercise that not only helps build the abs but trains your shoulder, arm, and core. It is particularly effective for the stabilizer muscles of your core, which help support your entire body and prevent it from twisting or shifting while performing other movements.

Renegade Rows

The renegade row is another great core and arm workout that’s also great for preparing your abs for the kettlebell swing. Start in a plank position with your legs and kettlebell arm extended straight, keeping your core engaged.

Hinge forward with a neutral spine and grab the handle of the kettlebell. Hike the bell between your legs, hiking it in a center-like fashion to quickly extend your hips.
