1. Lie on your back and lift the kettlebell over one shoulder to a locked out position. If using one arm to get into position, press that shoulder down to the ground before pushing up.
2. The leg on the same side of the kettlebell has the heel pressed into the ground.
3. With head up, looking straight above the kettlebell, roll to the opposite side, balancing your body with your free forearm and arm, pressing with the heel of your foot to reach a sit up position.
4. The arm with the kettlebell stays straight and your head stays up as you brace yourself with your free hand.
5. Pause, then return to the starting position.
