Try this kettlebell press variation to really dial in to your technique and super engage your core.
You don’t need to use a heavy weight with the half kneeling press since your body position is the primary factor that challenges you and not excessive training load.
I have found that all my other lifts improve when I practice and stay connected to exercises like half kneeling kettlebell pressing.
The productively unstable position you place your body into really teaches you to identify with, engage and train your core musculature which is so important for powerful and pain free full ranges of movement.
If you want your arms and legs to move well with power and mobility, then a strong, engaged core is needed for a quality existence on this planet.
These types of exercises really plug those pesky leaks in your power by forcing you to train all your stabilizer muscles and really connects you to your core. This will positively transfer to other aspects of your training as well as making you awesomely capable in your everyday real world activities!

Tips And Techniques
Do an equal amount of kettlebell presses on each side.
Use a weight that’s challenging, but not so heavy that you compromise your form.
Don’t rush your repetitions, take it slow to really get your core musculature firing
Avoid bending forward or to either side – stay upright and stable with a forward gaze as you press
Don’t forget to breathe – out through the mouth on the way up and in through the nose on the way down.
For a greater challenge to your stabilizer muscles and more profound metabolic effect, try training on a “live” unstable terrain like sand once you get the technique down. Even better if you can go barefoot.
Do a meaningful warmup before you train
