Step 2: Keeping your legs and feet glued together, roll the spine off the floor and come up to a sitting position as you press the kettlebell overhead. Stick the chest out at the top of the movement to make sure you get completely vertical.

Step 3: Roll the spine back to the floor as you bring the kettlebell into the chest. If you find your feet are coming off the floor, try tucking them under a heavy pair of dumbells or the couch to anchor you.
