A shoulder and tricep exercise that utilises power generated from the legs

  1. Choose appropriately sized kettlebells. 2 x 12-16kg for men and 2 x 4-8kg for women
  2. Start in a standing position with the kbs resting on the back of the forearms, chest and shoulders
  3. Squat down just a few inches and then rapidly reverse the momentum and drive the kbs upwards, straightening the legs fully and extending the arms straight above the shoulders. hold for a second then carefully return to your starting position.
  4. Remember to always keep the bellybutton pulled in, especially when the kbs are above the head to stabilise your core. co-ordinate a forceful exhale with the push and repeat 10-20 times
