Similar Exercises

Stand with your feet spaced at shoulder width and hold the kettlebell evenly by the horns, roughly in front of your neck.

Start by moving the kettlebell tightly around your head, flexing your wrists to allow for a smooth motion. Once you have completed a rotation come back the same path to return to the start position. The circular motion should mimic a halo around your head. Conduct the movement in a slow and controlled manner. Repeat for the desired repetitions.

Avoid raising your arms too high above your head.
