Both the halo and the orbit (shown on the next slide) are amazing moves for shoulder-joint mobility as well as your abs, Laura says. “In today’s world, we really neglect the core. Lots of people have back issues and things like that, so the orbit and the halo are great moves to increase the strength in your midsection,” she explains.
- Hold a kettlebell with both hands and bring it up to your chest. Keep holding onto the kettlebell with both hands as you raise it up over the left side of your head (your left ear).
- Slowly move the kettlebell so it is behind your head, then move the kettlebell so it is over your right ear. Keep your head straight and core engaged while you do these movements.
- Bring the kettlebell back to your chest, then reverse the movement (bring it up to behind the right ear, then behind your head, then behind your left ear).
- Bring the kettlebell back to your chest. This completes one rep. Do 10 reps.
