| Muscle Group(s): | Modality:

Preparation

Begin from a lowered squat position with both hands on the Kettlebell (KB) in between the legs. Pull the KB back toward the thighs by rocking the bodyweight into the heels and brace wrists against inner thighs.

Movement

Powerfully extend lower body to accelerate the bottom of the KB up and away. As it ascends, counterbalance the forward pull of the KB by shifting the bodyweight back. As it descends along the same pathway, absorb the KB with the entire body.
