Step 1: Stand with feet outside of the shoulders so you can drop into your squat with good posture. Hold the kettlebell at chest height — the bottom of the kettlebell should be no lower than the bra line.
Step 2: Send the hips back and down, letting the knees bend as you go. The knees stay behind the toes and your weight goes into your heels. You should be able to wiggle your toes at the bottom of the squat.
Step 3: Exhale and press into the heels as your raise yourself up to standing. Push the hips to the front. Think of your hips as the leader of this movement, guiding the body down and back up while your squeeze the glutes and quadriceps.
