Move Targets: Total body


Step 1: Hold a ketllebell in both hands with legs hip-width apart. Begin the exercise by stepping to the left into a squat, swinging the weight between the legs (arms should touch the inner thighs).


Step 2: At the bottom of the movement shift your weight back and thrust up through the hips to bring the weight up to about shoulder level as you step the right foot next to the left.


Step 3: Step to the left again as you squat, swinging the weight between the legs. Thrust through the hips as you come up, stepping the right foot in and swinging the weight all the way up over the head (or to shoulder level, if that's more comfortable).


Step 4:  Bring the weight down and take the lateral squats and kettlebell swings to the right for a total of 8 laps. One lap includes: Step, squat and downswing, step together upswing to the shoulders, step, squat and downswing, step together upswing to over the head.
