To start this exercise:
Stand with your feet hip or shoulder-width apart, toes pointed straight ahead. Tighten your abs and hold the kettlebell/dumbbell at chest height by holding the sides of the handle. Pull the kettlebell/dumbbell close to your body and squeeze your shoulder blades together.
Sit your hips back and bend your knees to lower yourself into a squat. Keep the chest up as you squat and squat as low as you can while keeping your back straight (when your back starts to round, that’s too low).
Drive through the feet as you stand and squeeze your glutes as you return to the standing position.
