Kettlebell (girevoy) Sport

Rules of Girevoy Sport are as brutal as they are simple:

10 minutes to do as many lifts as possible without putting the bells down
Men use 32kg kettlebells
Women use 24kg kettlebells

Competition takes place in two categories:
Biathlon (Total score = Number of Jerks in 10 min + Number of Snatches in 10 min)
Long Cycle Jerks (whatever number of lifts you do in 10 minutes = your score)

Success at Girevoy Sport requires:
Strength
Endurance
Mental Toughness

Although kettlebells have been around for a while, GS began in Soviet Russia in late 1940s. First Girevoy Sport championship took place in Moscow in 1948.
The sport is young but it is growing and little by little is taking over the world. You can find GS competition and training taking place in many countries and regions including Europe, United States, England, Finland and Norway.
Girevoy Sport is one of the toughest competitive events on the planet. It’s also one of the most beneficial endeavors we mortals can undertake as we try to improve our physical and mental wellbeing. Yeah, it’s hard.
