Kettlebell lifting, also know as kettlebell sport or girevoy sport is a technical sport which requires skill, power, stamina and flexibility. The three competition lifts are c…alled the same as in weightlifting: clean, jerk and snatch, but they look very different because there's no bar to restrict the movement and also the weight itself is relatively light. .
The techniques are very logical, ergonomic, safe and easy to learn, but to perform a 10 minute set, which is the time in the competition, it takes a lot of practice. .
Training however is very rewarding, because it improves the physique from the very first exercise on. You don't need to start learning the technique with a stick, like you must do when lifting a barbell. Also the three basic lifts work every muscle of the body and offer an aerobic exercise at the same time. Your progress is constant: either you lift longer, or faster or heavier, and you can see measurable results every week, even if you only train three times a week, 15 minutes at a time. You can start lifting kettlebells at any age and there are no requirements of fitness level, either. . (MORE)
