Starting Position: Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, toes pointing forward. Hold a kettlebell by the handle with both hands with an overhand grip, palms facing you. Squat down like you are going to sit in a chair and rest the kettlebell on the ground between your feet, keeping your arms straight.

  1. 1 Exhaling, explode up to a standing position and raise the kettlebell up to your chin, raising your elbows up and out to form an “M”.
  2. 2 Inhale and slowly return back to the starting squat position.
  3. 3 Repeat this exercise until you have completed all repetitions for the set.
