  1. Holding a kettlebell in your left hand, plant both feet on the floor shoulder-width apart. This is your starting position.
  2. Inhale. Carefully take a big step forwards with your left foot. As you plant your left foot on the floor, bend both knees to approximately 90 degrees, ensuring that your weight is evenly distributed between both legs. When done correctly, your front knee will be aligned with your ankle and your back knee will be hovering just off the floor. Pass the kettlebell under your left leg and grasp with your right hand, ensuring that your chest remains proud.
  3. Exhale. Extend both knees and transfer your weight completely onto your right foot. Step your left foot backward to return to the starting position, with the kettlebell in your right hand.

When done correctly, your front knee will be aligned with your ankle and your back knee will be hovering just off the floor. Pass the kettlebell under your right leg and grasp with your left hand, once again ensuring that your chest remains proud.
