I always strive to reduce the time to do my snatches. I currently am under 7 35. This is one of the most strenuous workouts I have ever done. When the weather is nice, I go outside and throw the kettlebells for height and distance -one handed and two handed from every angle. Throw, then sprint to the implement throw again for time. Usually 6-10 minutes or the length of whatever tournament I am preparing for. I will repeat for three 'bouts'. I will also thread a towel inside the handle for...

Valentin Dikul

Doctor Krayevskiy, the founder of the St. Petersburg Athletic Club, 'the father of Russian athletics', and 'Russian Lion' Hackenschmidt's coach, trained religiously with kettlebells. The doctor took up training at the age of forty-one and twenty years later he was said to look fresher and healthier than at forty. Many Russians throw their KBs around non-competitively, just for health. Vasiliy Kubanov, from a village in the Kirovograd area, underwent a very complex digestive tract surgery at...

Again, greater overload through a longer range of motion equals greater muscle mass. Pyotr Kryloffs pecs never failed to inspire admiration and not just because they were tattooed with a double headed Russian imperial eagle. 'The King of Kettlebells' boasted spectacular chest development, unparalleled in his pre-bench press era. Predictably, Kryloffs training centered on a pair of 'doubles', or 32kg giryas. Giryas are every bit as superior for shoulder development. Try the Scott press that...

I had corresponded with Steve Maxwell for awhile before I met him face to face. Steve is a Senior World Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Champion, a personal trainer extraordinaire, and a true Renaissance man. I finally got to shake Steve's hand at the last Arnold Schwarzenegger's Fitness Expo. This superathlete and his son Zack assisted me at the Arnold's Training Seminar. Both had been following the Bullet-Proof Abs program and effortlessly knocked off evil Janda situps that had stopped a studly...

Kettlebell Fundamentals

David Willoughby, a weightlifting champion from the 1920s and a man of unquestionable authority on the iron game, stated that the two-arm swing brings into action and develops practically every group of muscles on the back of the body and legs, and a good many others besides. If you have time on your schedule for only one back exercise, make it this one. The swing is a great way to learn your way around a kettlebell and get prepared for the more difficult snatch. Pick up a kettlebell with both...

Not a single sport develops our muscular strength and bodies as well as kettlebell athletics, wrote Ludvig Chaplinskiy in the Russian magazine Hercules in 1913. Indeed. Pyotr Kryloffs pipes measured 49cm, or 19 inches, at his prime, exactly one hundred years ago. Kettlebell master, Ivan Poddubny sported a pair of 52cm, or almost 21 inch arms Before steroids, protein shakes, and easy living. All old-time Russian physique men trained with kettlebells. Konstantin Stepanov from St. Petersburg, the...

Clean the bell to your shoulder to start with. Maximally tighten your body on impact. It is not just about shock absorption bracing for the weight will make the kettlebell feel like a toy in your hand and your muscles will be powerfully loaded for action. One of the top reasons comrades get injured in the gym is the idiotic notion of 'isolation'. Put it to rest, isolation is neither possible nor desirable. Make a fist. A white-knuckle fist Observe how tension involuntarily overflows from your...

Kettlebell

In the old days, any Russian strongman or lifter was called a girevik, or 'a kettlebell man'. Many famous Soviet weightlifters, such as Vorobyev, Vlasov, Alexeyev, and Stogov, started their Olympic careers with old-fashioned kettlebells. Recalls two times Olympic champion and world record holder Leonid Zhabotinskiy We kids got into the habit of visiting the local blacksmith. Among the metal scrap in his shop we found a one-pood 16kg kettlebell. So we tried real hard lifting it with one arm,...

Suvorov, legendary Russian military leader The Red Army, too pragmatic to waste their troopers'time on pushups and situps, quickly caught on. Every Russian military unit, even outposts remote as the planet Mars, has a gym. For some strange reason, maybe because it makes your sweaty basement dungeon look like a yuppie health spa, it is called a 'courage corner' I wish it was a joke . Every courage corner, including the permafrost-crusted cave in one of the units I served in, is equipped...
