Who says you have to be standing to do kettlebell chest exercises? But don't be fooled, just because you are laying down doesn't mean this isn't a killer workout. Choose your kettlebells, making sure they are heavy enough to give you a workout but not so heavy that they cause strain. Lay on your back with your legs together and extended. Place a kettlebell in each hand, lifting your forearms to 90 degrees so that the weight rolls onto the top of your wrist. Your upper arms should be pressed into your body with palms facing each other. Slowly push your right hand straight up to the ceiling, turning your palm so that it faces your feet. Once lifted, push up with the left hand. Slowly lower the right hand, returning to your starting position and then repeat with the left hand. Continue the kettlebell exercises for the chest, performing two to three sets of ten to fifteen lifts with each hand.
