The 2 Kettlebell Front Squat is a very similar exercise to the barbell front squat as well as the Kettlebell Goblet Squat. On some occasions the kettlebell front squat is more favorable to perform than the traditional barbell front squat because there is less stress that is put onto the wrists.


To perform:

  1. Clean both of the kettlebells up to your shoulders so that they are in the racked position

  2. Set your feet shoulder width apart

  3. Keep your chest up and elbows packed against your ribcage

  4. Squat down as low as possible (without pain)

    1. Ideally your thighs will be parallel to the floor

  5. Push through both feet and stand all the way

  6. Brace your abs and butt cheeks as hard as you can at the top, like you are in a standing plank
