To perform this exercise, begin by standing straight and holding the kettlebell with both hands, your arms hanging loose in front of your body.

Then, perform a squat, bending your legs at the knee and allowing your arms to drop in between your knees, lowering the kettlebell towards the floor.

Finally, stand back up again, and as you stand straight, lift the kettlebell directly in front of you, straighting your arms out in front of your chest, parallel to the floor.

This exercise works a wide range of upper body muscles, and has a slight involvement of the leg muscles as well, making it a great all around move to master.

Goblet Squat

The kettlebell goblet squat is another popular exercise that you should consider adding to your daily workout routine.

To perform the goblet squat correctly, begin by holding the kettlebell with both hands at your chest, standing erect. Bend your knees and squat  as low as you can, so that your buttocks almost touches the floor. As you squat, maintain the position of the kettlebell with your hands at your chest.

Then, from the squatting position, slowly unbend your knees to stand straight once more, and repeat the exercise.

This exercise is best performed at a slow pace, which will work your leg muscles more thoroughly than trying to rush through the exercise.

While there is some arm strength required to maintain the position of the kettlebell, the primary focus of this move is to strengthen the legs.
