2. Shoulder Halo x 12:

Kneel with your left knee on the floor (your toes tucked under) and right foot planted in front, your knee bent at a 90-degree angle. Grasp the lighter kettlebell low beside your left hip, twisting slightly to the right as you simultaneously side-bend toward the left.

3. Weighted Sit-Up x 12:

Lie on your back, hold a kettlebell near your chest and sit straight up. Press your lower back into the ground to fully engage your core and close out that space between your ribs and your hips.

4. Figure-8 Pass x 12:

Set up as in the shoulder halo but with one heavy kettlebell in your hand, raise each leg and pass it underneath it, drawing a sort of “figure eight” around your lower body. Do 8 reps, alternating sides.
