- From this position the extended arms swing the Smashbell between the legs.
- With the momentum pull the arm with the Smashbell along the body. Extend the legs and push the hips forward to strengthen the momentum. At about chest level, bring the elbow back while the forearm continues to swing upwards. At the turning point, the arm is extended explosively and the Smashbell is flipped over the head.
- The return movement is initiated through the bending of the arm, which brings the Smashbell slowly to rest on the chest. From this position the forearm is extended down and the arm is opened at the elbow. To end, slightly bend the knees and bend the upper body, with a straight back, forward.
Keep the back straight throughout the whole exercise. Strengthen the swing by extending the hips.
