Grip the kettle bell with an overhand grip.
Keeping your neck and head straight, swing the kettlebell back between your legs.
Once the kettlebell is behind you, immediately reverse the direction and drive forward with your hips and knees, forcing the kettlebell upward.
When the kettlebell reaches shoulder level, rotate your hand and push straight up, using your momentum.

Return to the start position.
Repeat until all the repetitions for one arm are completed, then switch.
