10 Kettlebell deadlifts
How to do it:
Begin by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and toes pointed slightly outward. The kettlebell should be placed just behind your ankles. Breathe in through your nose and hinge from your hips. Grab the kettlebell and, keeping your spine neutral, press through the floor into a standing position.
Begin on your belly with palms facing down and shoulder width apart. Fully extend your arms. Bend your elbows and slowly lower your upper body until your forehead is near the floor. Fully extend your arms and repeat.
12 Kettlebell Squats
Begin by standing with legs a bit wider than shoulder-length apart. Squat and grab the kettlebell with your right hand and return to standing position. Perform three squats on the right while maintaining hold of the kettlebell. Switch to the left for another three.
Kettlebell Swings 30 seconds
Begin by standing with feet shoulder-width apart, toes pointed slightly out, and knees bent; your gaze should be straight ahead. Hold kettlebell between your legs with an overhand grip. Keeping the arch in your lower back, bend your hips back until the kettlebell is between and behind your legs; engage your glutes to extend your hips and swing the kettlebell up. Let the kettlebell swing back between your legs as you bend your hips and slightly bend your knees. Extend your hips and knees to reverse the momentum as you move right into the next rep.
