In this video, the elite trainer brings in Raiders defensive end Lamarr Houston to show you how to work your full body with just a kettlebell.

This is a simple exercise that can be done at home and requires minimal equipment. All you need is a kettlebell.

This exercise works your hamstrings, core and your entire upper body. This is an amazing workout to do when you have limited time at home.

Make sure you follow the correct form: stand with your feet shoulder width apart, toes straight, knees straight, and swing the kettlebell back and forth, squatting and exploding up. Do 10-20 reps for five sets with a 3-15 kilo kettlebell.

Happy sweating.
