Like goblet squats, the double kettlebell squat is a great exercise for teaching you how to squat properly, for improving leg and core strength, and for developing greater mobility in the ankles, knees, and hips.
The double kettlebell squat is performed the same as a goblet squat in that you hold the kettlebells to your chest, tuck your elbows in, and then squat until your hips are below your knees. Like the goblet squat you need to ensure your knees aren't caving in on the way back up.
The double kettlebell squat also has the added difficulty of requiring you to clean the kettle bells off the floor andante the rack position. To do this you want to rip the kettlebells off the floor, and get your body beneath them so that they nestle as softly into the crooks of your arms as possible.
