1. Lie flat on the floor with a kettlebell near your shoulder. Use two hands to safely pick the kettlebell off the floor, and then press it overhead with one arm. Hold the kettlebell straight up with your elbow locked.
2. Bend one knee (the one that's on the same side of the pressed kettlebell), keeping your foot flat on the floor. Take your free arm and place it out to your side.
3. Exhale and rise up off the floor using your stomach muscles and keeping the kettlebell straight up at all times. Come to a complete sitting position, using your free arm as a brace. Tighten your abs and squeeze your glutes at the top of the motion.
4. Come back down slowly, keeping your kettlebell arm straight and your entire core tight.
