This is a challenging and fun kettlebell training exercise to train the often forgotten transverse plane (rotational) of motion for the trunk. This is also a kettlebell training exercise one could easily do wrong.
Be sure to control the descent and ascent of this exercise. This is not a movement where the ground is the destination. The destination is the amount of movement you can control. Aim to keep both your shoulder blades glued to the ground while your lower half does the movement and the force is controlled and transferred through the trunk. This is an advanced kettlebell training exercise, so bending your knees to 90 degrees is a great regression exercise until you possess the strength to do with legs straight.
