Start off by holding the kettlebell handle straight up in the air in the laying down position. The bell should be resting on your forearm on the side closest to your head. Whatever arm you are holding the kettlebell with should have that same leg bent at the knee with your foot on the ground. Using your free hand for balance, drive your upper body forward in a sit up position keeping the kettlebell straight up in the air at all times. Complete the rep by returning the laying down position.

The recommended amount of reps to perform with this exercise is 6. Once you complete the first set of reps, switch arms to perform the second set.
