How to Stay Safe During the Most Dangerous Part of the Get-up

I know this is going to sound stupid, but *assuming your technique is solid* the riskiest part of the get-up is bringing the weight back down and switching sides.

Thankfully there are very simple ways to avoid a silly injury here.

1) Use both hands to bring the kettlebell down to your chest, then roll your whole body over to bring the bell back to the floor.

2) Either halo the bell close to the floor around your head or get off the floor and move yourself to the other side of the bell. Never lift that bell across your face or chest – it’s just not worth it!
