Kneeling variaitons can add in some well needed variation to your exercise routine. Although the stimulus is often very similar to seated or standing variations, thats not to say adding the variations into your training wont spruce up your workout routine and make it more fun!
Kneeling exercises are exercises performed in either the tall kneeling or the half kneeling positions. They have become a lot more popular over the past 5 years and offer a lot more variety to those who are training at home with just a few kettlebells to work with.
It’s tough to give the “most effective” as every exercise has its own purpose. But my favourite kneeling core exercise is the half kneeling cross chop.
Again there really isnt a best exercises here, but the half kneeling KB press is a great strength exercises for athletes from this position as it requires both strength and core stability.
