Kettlebell Sport (aka: Girevoy Sport), focuses on training athletes to work under submaximal load for an extended amount of time in a competition setting. Although competition is not the main goal for all lifters, it is what provides the lifter with a target, something that will allow for measureable progress. In competition, an athlete is required to complete one of 3 lifts (Snatch, Long Cycle, or Jerk) for a 10-minute set, completing as many proper reps as possible. Reps that do not meet all of the guidelines are thrown out as no counts, so excellent form is essential.
As a sport kettlebell lifter, you can expect to build strength, efficiency, flexibility, and confidence. Due to the sport’s focus on endurance, kettlebell sport lifters tend not to build a lot of mass, but rather stay long, lean, and strong. This sport is great for both men and women!
**No prior lifting experience is necessary.
