Strengthen Hamstrings, Quadriceps, Groin and Glutes
INSTRUCTIONS: Your stance is slightly wider than hip-width. Toes point forward. From a standing position, grip the kettlebell in both hands with palms down (pronated grip). Slowly bend your hips and knees as you lower the weight to the floor. Maintain a straight line from the crown of your head to your low back.
TECHNIQUE: Avoid rounding forward, looking up at the ceiling, or down at the floor. Maintain neutral shoulders.
MODIFICATONS: 1) Use a lighter weight. 2) Bend less at the knee. The lower you descend, the harder it is to get up.
