The figure 8 "works the same posterior chain that the swing does," Laura says. In addition, "because you're kind of squatting up and down, it's great for the core and for the heart, and because you're twisting, it's great for the stabilizers."
- Hold a kettlebell to your chest with your right hand holding onto one corner of the horn (the handle). With feet hip-width apart, lower down into a squat.
- Once you are in a squat position, thread the kettlebell through the middle of your legs. Reach behind you with your left hand to grab onto the other corner of the horn.
- Once you have the kettlebell in your left hand behind your left leg, move it around the outside of your left thigh and thread it back through the middle of your legs. This time, grab onto it with your right hand behind your right leg.
- Move the kettlebell around your right leg so it's once again in front of you and in your right hand. This completes one rep.
- Do 10 reps.
