This is a great stretch for the hips, hamstrings, and glutes, while also strengthening them as well. It also targets the hip flexors and stretches the groin.
- Begin by holding your kettlebell against the middle of your chest. Place your feet shoulder-width apart, with toes pointing slightly out. While keeping your weight on your heels, start pushing your hips back and towards the floor. Your hips should move before your knees bend.
- Keep your chest up and try to wedge your elbows in between your knees at the bottom point of the movement – when your posterior is level with your thighs. Even if you can’t reach your knees, focus on pushing them slightly apart. Initiate the second part of the move by driving your hips forward to return to the start position.
