Set-up: Begin in a strong and stable, slightly wider than shoulder width stance. Position a kettlebell by your side.
Movement: Drop your hips behind you while hinging at the hips. Keeping your trunk stable and braced, rotate the side of your body away from the kettlebell towards the bell, and grasp it with that hand. Again keeping a strong brace in your core, clean the bell up and away to the chest of the working arm.
Repetitions: Perform all repetitions on one side, rest, then switch to the other side. This counts as one set.
Strength criteria: If you do not have pre-existing experience with cleans, skip this exercise and replace it with something that is technically simpler to perform.
