Sit-up to standing - Abs exercises - Women's Health & Fitness

How to:
Lie face up with your knees bent holding the kettlebell overhead, arms extended.

Forcefully bend at the waist, simultaneously bringing arms and kettlebell forward, pulling heels slightly back towards your glutes to stand up.

From the standing position, carefully descend into a squat, roll your torso back to the start and rhythmically begin your next rep.
