Start in a standing position, take your feet out sideways so that they are wider than shoulder width and toes turned out slightly. Hold the kettlebell in both hands. Then bend your left knee and push your hips backward, to lower yourself down over your left foot. Your right leg should remain as straight as possible. Keep your heels down on the floor. From here, straighten your left leg to stand up and return to the center position. Then bend your right knee to squat over to your right-hand side with your left leg straight. Keep your back straight and shoulders back at all times, bend forward from your hips.
