Single-arm kettlebell front squat

The single-arm kettlebell front squat is a popular kettlebell movement performed while holding a single kettlebell in the front-racked position. It targets the muscles of the lower body dynamically, and the muscles of the upper back and core isometrically. It can be trained in traditional strength or muscle-building rep ranges, in circuit or fat-loss training, or as part of a kettlebell combination or complex.


  1. Encourages proper squat form and depth with an upright torso
  2. Strong isometric contraction of the biceps, lats, upper back, and core
  3. Uniquely challenging to the core by forcing stabilization one side at a time
  4. Works well with heavy and light weights
  5. Cleaning the kettlebell to the rack position strengthens the hips and back muscles
