Kettlebell Fundamentals

Kettlebell Fundamentals

Perhaps the only thing more unique than the kettlebell itself is how it is used in kettlebell sport competitions. There are three traditional events in kettlebell sport: Snatch, Jerk, and Longcycle (Clean & Jerk). This is a weightlifting sport, but instead of lifting a maximal weight for one successful repetition, kettlebell lifters attempt to lift as many reps as possible in their 10-minute set(s) without setting the bell(s) down (setting down ends the set). The unique design of the kettlebell allows for a swinging element, utilizing momentum and counterbalance to produce a cyclical work-to-rest dynamic. This allows the athlete to train and compete at or just below their Maximum Aerobic Threshold (MAP), making kettlebell sport a unique option for intense cardiovascular training. In this workshop you will learn the fundamentals of kettlebell use, and how to appropriately format your workouts to build your MAP.
