Lift your body up to the starting position, keeping your arms straight and core engaged. Then, slowly drag the kettlebell across your torso diagonally until it’s raised above your right shoulder. Slowly lower it back down by your left hip. That’s one rep. Perform a total of 10 to 15 reps on each side.

Reaching underneath your torso, drag the kettlebell to the opposite side of your torso.
