Kettlebell Floor Press

Kettlebell floor press begins with seven points of contact: Heels, hips, shoulders, elbow of pressing arm.

Once weight is firmly set and begins to move, remaining six points are kept throughout the entire lift.

The “non-working” hand, much like in a stacked-hand kettlebell swing clean, is essentially a stabilizer bar, ensuring that the arm moves 100% straight and the fist stays vertical (not diagonal or horizontal); It is a kickstand, not a pressing assistant.

Elbow touches but does not smash the ground at the end of each rep, and a full, aggressive lock-out is neither a variable position or a suggestion.

Not dragging heavy weight across your chest or face while switching sides should be a given.
