The Kettlebell Sit and Press is a fantastic exercise for strengthening the core, hip flexors, upper back and shoulders. It is an exercise that involves having to move the upper body form a lying position to a sit up and an extension of the elbows.
Before you perform this movement, I would recommend that you learn the correct technique by doing the movement without a kettlebell. You may tend to find that when you do the sit up part of the movement, your feet come off the ground, that is a sign that your core is not strong enough and you need to work on your technique and core strength.
