Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Easy

Impact Level: Low

Target Body Parts: abs, glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps


Start with your feet shoulder width apart and the kettlebell in your right hand. Hold the kettlebell next to your side with a straight arm. Begin the movement by sitting your hips back, bending your knees and push them out to the sides a little, whilst keeping your core tight, head looking forwards at eye height and your chest up. Your heels should stay in contact with the floor and your weight should be centered, mid-foot. Continue down until your hips are level with your knees and your thighs are parallel (or as low to this as your mobility will allow). The kettlebell should come down next to your toes. This is the bottom of the squat, and quickly reverse the motion until you return to the starting position. As you squat, keep your head and chest up and push your knees out.
