An ab workout with kettlebell is a great way to get tight abs, sculpted legs, and strong arms. But it can also feel a bit intense. If you’re new to using a kettlebell, Roxie Jones, the founder of Kettlebell Fitness, has put together some tips and tricks to make your workouts as effective as possible.
Start in a half-kneeling position with knees bent at 90-degree angles and right foot in front. Hold a kettlebell by the bottom of the horn diagonally across your body to the outside of left hip, moving weight on a diagonal and taking it up overhead.

Keep your body and core squared and upright at all times during the exercise. Then, drag the bell across to your left side and back up again to the starting position.
Walk forward keeping your torso and the kettlebell up overhead the entire time. Repeat the motion on the other side and complete 8 to 12 repetitions.
Typewriter drags x 12: This is one of the most challenging ab exercises you can do with a kettlebell, says Duncan. “The key is to use your abs to resist the rotation of the kettlebell from side to side as you drag it,” she says.
Push up x 10: This is a good way to target your obliques and abdominal muscles without straining your back. Place your feet at shoulder width and hold a kettlebell in front of you.
Side plank x 5-8: This is an excellent way to build strength and stability in the core while targeting the abdominals. With a kettlebell in your hand, perform one push up, then remove your hand to rotate to a side plank and drive your knee to your elbow.
