Areas trained: GLUTES, HAMSTRINGS, LOWER BACK, CORE
Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. To get into the proper position start with the kettlebell on the floor about a foot in front of you. With slightly soft knees, bend at the waist hinging at the hips rather than dropping down like a squat. Grasp the kettlebell with both palms facing you and your body almost parallel to the floor. Pull your shoulder blades down and back and brace your core throughout the exercise. Lift the kettlebell off the floor and let it swing back between your knees while maintaining your posture. Once the kettlebell reaches its back position explode forwards with your hips and drive the kettlebell in front of you to shoulder height ensuring that the power is coming from your hips rather than arching back and lifting with your arms or shoulders.
