Alternating Kettlebell Shoulder Press has all the advantages of a classic bench press, but also includes core stability muscles. This exercise is the best way to load deltoid muscles due to the use of small weight dumbbells, so the chance of injury is reduced.
The alternating kettlebell shoulder press increases muscular strength through the entire shoulder region. Performing the exercise in an alternating manner will create balance and stability on both sides of the body while actively engaging the core.
