Grip Training Using Kettlebells
I will explain in just a moment…
Awesome job with this week’s challenge, everybody. We saw some new faces, some we haven’t seen in a while, and some who continue to challenge themselves week in and week out. It’s great watching everyone push themselves in lifts that they may not normally try!
This week’s challenge was the Bottoms Up Press. This is just one way you can use kettlebells in order to strengthen the hands. If you want to find out other ways to get a stronger grip with kettlebells, check out our Advanced Kettlebell Training eBooks.
The scoring for this week’s challenge involved multiplying the weight of the kettlebell in pounds by the number of repetitions in the Bottoms Up Press. I was looking for complete reps and started the 1-minute time limit once the bell began moving upwards on the first repetition. If the reps looked short to me, I docked them and tried to be consistent as possible.
This week’s winner is Andy Thomas, dominating his 35-lb Kettlebell for an even 30 good reps (a couple looked a little short).
Regardless of the number of reps, you guys did awesome! The challenge for next week should be up some time tomorrow!
Anybody else think Brian Wilson’s beard is starting to resemble a kettlebell???

70-lbs X 5 Reps = 350 Points
53-lbs X 9 Reps = 477 Points
35-lbs X 30 Reps = 1050 Points
35-lbs X 13 Reps = 455 Points
44-lbs X 9 Reps = 396 Points
15-lbs X 28 Reps = 420 Points
35-lbs X 25 Reps = 875 Points
All the best in your training.
