Quick tips before you start!!


Goblet Squat


Start with feet shoulder width apart and toes pointed 45 degree angle out. Hole the kettlebell in front of you with your elbows bent at a 90 degree angle. Breathe in while you squat down making sure that your knees do not pass your toes and step out with your foot about 8 inches. Act as you are sitting down into a chair. Put your weight into your heels. Make sure that your back is as straight up as you can position it. Breathe out as you raise back to the starting position. Take a 30 second rest and repeat for 12 repetitions before moving on to the next exercise.
