Starting Position:
- Begin in a squat stance with feet shoulder width apart.
- Hold a kettlebell with both hands.

- Tighten the abs and sit back on the heels while descending in to a deep squat.
- A box or chair can be placed behind the client as a target to sit back on to.
- Pause at the bottom for 1-2 seconds and return to starting position.
- The idea is to resist the urge to lean forward or sideways while moving up and down.

- Keep the resistance moderate to concentrate on working the core.

- One dumbbell in two hands to one dumbbell in each hand to sand bag to barbell on shoulders.
