Windmill is a great kettlebell exercise that will target your legs, shoulders and core.

Windmill exercise with kettlebell - Women's Health & Fitness

Focus: Legs, stability, shoulders, core 
and agility

How to

Starting with the shoulder press exercise, you add two movements for a windmill affect. Once  you have performed a clean and press, turn your feet on an angle and, keeping both arms straight, lock the elbow. Weighted arm goes top and other arm to the ground, forming a diagonal shape like a windmill.Once again, the slower you start, the better.

This is a great exercise but should not be rushed as it uses the lower back and the twist motion gets the obliques fired up. Look straight ahead – not at the floor – as you do this exercise to keep your spine in line. Breathe in to come up, exhale at the top and come back to the clean and shoulder press.
