Kettlebell Box Squat


  • Use kettlebells for the desired workload range.
  • Grab the kettlebells with an overhand grip.
  • Use a box for the desired height of the squat.
  • Squeeze your shoulder blades together so that your shoulders and back are tight throughout the movement.
  • Place the kettlebells on your thighs and use your thighs to bring the weight up to your shoulders.
  • Have your palms facing away and the bell end of the weight is on the back of your wrist.
  • Have your feet at shoulder width or outside shoulder width apart with toes pointed outwards slightly.


  • Drop your hips and glutes to the floor and drop until your glutes touch the box or sit on the box completely.
  • Press up through your heels without hunching your back.
  • Keep back straight and head looking forward throughout movement.
  • Repeat this for necessary reps.


  • After completion, bring the kettlebells to your thigh and either drop them to the floor or bend at the hips and keep back straight to place on the ground.
