An Exercise designed to target the back, shoulder ad bicep muscles.

  1. Choose appropriately sized kettlebells. Men 2 x 12 or 16kg and women 2 x 4 or 8kg. Place the kettlebells on the floor in front of you.
  2. Grab the handles by squatting slightly, maintain a forward lean in your upperbody but without losing your neutral spinal alignment i.e. maintain a slightly arched lower back, chest up, eyes forward. Support the back by drawing in your abdominals
  3. Pull the elbows and therefore the KBs up towards your hips, not your ribs, until the elbows are at least above the line of the back.
  4. Return to the starting position and repeat 10 times. Remember to breathe, keep your abs permanently tensed and protect your spine at all times by maintaining good posture
