Push your hips forward and as you swing the kettlebell tuck your elbow to your side and catch the kettlebell at your shoulder. Press the Kettlebell straight up. Make sure your elbow does not flair out, keep it in line with your wrist. As you lift the Kettlebell keep your core tight and do not swing your upper body. Reverse this entire movement back down making sure to control the Kettlebell.
