Targets: quads, glutes, hamstrings, calves, abs

Step 1- Set up position: feet should be slightly wider than your hips and  your feet should be turned out at a 45 degree angle. Keep your core engaged, your back straight and your eyes on the horizon. Hold the kettlebell infront of your body.

Step 2. Bend your knees and move your butt towards the ground as if you are about to sit on a chair. Your hips should move slightly back and the goal is to try get the kettlebell as close to the floor without actually touching it.

Return to the set up position by driving up through your heels. Remember to squeeze your glutes at the top.

Repeat 12 to 15 reps
