Friday Exercise: Over Yets

Stickie enjoys working with kettle bells.  There may be another name for this exercise, but she likes to call it Over Yets (as in “Are they over yet?”).

She begins with a kettle bell in one hand, raised over her head.  The kettle bell will stay in this position throughout the exercise.  Stickie bends her knees, keeping her torso upright, placing one knee and then the other on the floor.  (She uses a squishy mat or towel for padding if necessary.)  Then she stands back up straight, coming through the position that could be described as “will you marry me?”

This is a challenging exercise and has to be done on both sides, so five repetitions per side is a good place to start.  A couple of sets is usually plenty.
