“This is where the cookies hang out!” Coach Jesse stresses that side dips are a great move for enhancing core strength and keeping your lower back in shape. “If you do them right,” he says, “you won’t feel much – until the next day.”
Coach Jesse recommends that women use between 20 to 40 pound kettlebells, and men consider 30 to 50 pound kettlebells.
Side Dips: How To
Start with your feet shoulder width apart, pick up a kettlebell, and hold it at your side, palm facing in. Keep your chin up and your back straight as you lower the kettlebell and dip to the side. Keep your core tight as you return to standing, repeat all reps on that side, and repeat on the other side.
