Start: Hold a kettlebell in your right hand and lie faceup with your legs straight. Bend your right leg to 90 degrees, and hold the kettlebell directly above your right shoulder, with your arm completely straight. Extend your left arm to the side and let it rest on the floor.

Movement:  Keeping your eyes on the kettlebell, raise your body and perform a crunch. As you perform the crunch, roll on to your left elbow to help stabilize your body. The kettlebell should remain overhead at all times. Pause, and then return to the starting position. Complete all reps, switch arms, and repeat.
