- Holding a kettlebell in your right hand at shoulder-height in a neutral grip (palm facing inwards), plant both feet on the floor slightly further than shoulder-width apart. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Carefully take a big step backwards with your right foot. As you plant your right 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.
- Exhale. Using the muscles in your arm and shoulder, extend your right elbow to press the kettlebell directly above your head. Your right arm should be in line with your right ear.
- Bend your elbow to lower the kettlebell down to shoulder-height.
- Extend both knees and transfer your weight completely onto your left foot. Step your right foot forward to return to the starting position. Complete half of the specified number of repetitions on the same side before completing the remaining repetitions on the other side.
