Stand feet spaced shoulder width apart, then squat to pick up the kettlebell. Bring it towards your side and place your other hand on your hip.

Start by leaning across until you start to feel a stretch in your side or go as far as comfortable then slowly straighten back to the start position. The path of the kettlebell should stay straight in line with the hips. Repeat for the desired repetitions then switch sides.

Avoid leaning too far forward or backwards.
