The Double Kettlebell Pullover is a great way to target the upper back and lats. By pulling from the ground you lose the risk of over-stretching or pulling a muscle. This is easier on the shoulders the the traditional pullover but must still be done with caution. Start light and move slow.
Body Parts Used:
Shoulders, Back, Core, Arms
Place a pair of kettlebells behind you at about arms length while laying on the ground
Reach back and with locked elbows, bring both kettlebells over your head to about chest level
Return the kettlebells back to position and repeat.
Maintain a tight core throughout the duration of the exercise. Keep your shoulders "packed" into the socket throughout the exercise. Keep your eye on the kettlebell as it's over your head.
