These are performed in much the same way as regular pushups. The only difference is that your hands aren’t flat on the ground. You instead have to grasp two kettlebells placed firmly on the ground. Knuckles should face outward and the back and legs should follow a straight diagonal line. Simply move your body down and then push up. This exercise works primarily on the upper body but it also helps improve range of motion.

Repeat according to the number of recommended repetitions. Aside from working on your core, twists also help build up your shoulders and arm muscles.
