Kettlebell Front Squat


  • Use kettlebells for the desired workload range.
  • Squeeze your shoulder blades together to keep your back and shoulders tight throughout the movement.
  • Grab the kettlebells with an over hand grip and place the dumbbells on your thighs.
  • Use your thighs to lift the kettlebells onto the front of your shoulders.
  • Flip the kettlebell onto the front of your shoulders so the ball end of the kettlebell is on your shoulders.
  • Have feet shoulder width apart or slightly outside shoulder width apart with toes pointed outwards slightly.


  • Drop your hips outwards and continue to drop until your knees are in line with your hips or slightly below.
  • Then, press up through the floor by forcing your hips forwards to the top of the movement.
  • Repeat for the necessary reps.


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