  • Read "Getting Started" before beginning any exercise
  • Begin in a standing position with a kettlebell held with both hands
  • Ensure that your back is straight and stays that way for the duration of the movement
  • Initiate the movement by flexing your hips, slowly pushing your butt as far back as you can
  • The knees should only partially bend, and your weight should remain on your heels.
  • When your hips cannot perform any further backward movement, slowly return to the starting position by extending the hips.
