kettlebell ab rotation is a great way to burn the fat in your midsection while also working on your core. “Kettlebells are a full-body exercise that really challenge all the muscles in your core, especially your obliques and back extensors,” says Duncan.
Start by holding a kettlebell in your right hand, about a foot in front of you. Then, step your left foot forward into a reverse lunge until the knee grazes the floor. simultaneously pass the kettlebell under your front leg into your right hand, then press up out of the lunge to return to standing with the kettlebell in your right hand.
