Stand with feet shoulder width apart and reach down and grab the handle of the kettlebell. Arch your back slightly and sit your butt back and lift the kettlebell up and close to your body. Finish the lift with the body erect and the kettlebell at your waist.
Be sure to keep your arms straight and don't try to curl the weight on the way up.
It is important to keep your head up and to lift with your legs and not completely with your back. Keep your back flat and try not to round it.
