Start with the kettlebell locked in the racked position overhead and your arm fully extended above your head. Keeping your legs wider than shoulder width and toes turned out, shift your weight forward and down into the right knee. Then drive your left foot toward the chest, squeezing your right butt cheek and allowing your right hand to touch your toe (one side-to-side count as a rep). Return back up to the starting point with the kettlebell still held overhead.
