Tone and Lift: Effective Kettlebell Workouts for Abs and Bum Transformation
To do the racked lunge, stand with your feet between shoulder and hip-width apart, your knees slightly bent for balance and brace your core. Hold the kettlebell ‘racked’ in one hand at shoulder height, the rounded part of the kettlebell uppermost and your other arm hanging down in front of you.
While keeping your chest and core engaged, lower yourself down into a lunge with the right leg until it reaches a 90-degree angle and your left knee is touching the floor. Keeping your core engaged, press into your right foot and the kettlebell with your left hand to lift yourself back to a standing position. Repeat the sequence on the opposite side.
