The double-kettlebell shoulder press is a popular movement in strength and muscle-focused kettlebell workouts. Each set is started by cleaning the weights up to the rack position. The weights can optionally be re-cleaned between each rep, which is known as a clean and press. The double press can be trained in traditional strength or muscle-growth rep ranges (e.g., 5x5 or 8-12 reps per set), or in circuit-style fat-loss training or kettlebell complexes.
