Kettlebell Windmill

The single-kettlebell windmill is a dynamic kettlebell exercise emphasizing core strength and shoulder and hip mobility and stability. It is often used as a functional warm-up or for multi-directional strength work. It doesn't work as well in a metcon or conditioning setting, and shouldn't be performed under intense fatigue.


  1. Builds strength throughout the abdomen, particularly the deep core (transversus abdominus) and obliques
  2. Easy to regress by limiting range of motion
  3. Can be performed with a light weight for beginners
  4. Builds shoulder stability, hip mobility, and thoracic spine mobility
