Over the last ten years or so, kettlebells have taken the strength training world by surprise, and are back on their way to becoming a regular part of the physical enthusiast's tool box alongside barbells and dumbbells. I say back, because as Atlanta, Georgia Strength coach, Scott Shetler points out, kettlebells have been part of the old time strongman's arsenal of muscle building weapons since the turn of the century. And no, not 1999 to 2000, but 1899 to 1900.

Of course, in today's world, kettlebells aren't used merely as a strongman implement. Kettlebells are used by everyone from strongmen and women, professional athletes, weekend warriors and kids, to that peculiar breed of people interested in building their strength and endurance by using the techniques practiced by Girevoy Sport (GS) athletes.

With the recent resurrection of kettlebells, the need for quality instruction has spawned several Federations/Organizations, all offering instruction in the proper lifting of kettlebells for sport, strength and fitness.

Furthermore, the kettlebell "culture" has divided itself into two main camps; the "Hardstyle" methods as taught by Pavel Tsatsouline, and the Girevoy Sport methods as taught by the World Kettlebell Club, the United States Girevoy Sport Federation, the International Kettlebell and Fitness Federation and several others around the world.

However, until recently, the printed offerings for Girevoy Sport instruction have been sparse and mostly limited to the Russian language. With Kettlebells for Sport, Strength and Fitness, Coach Shetler has written one of the easiest to understand guides for the novice to experienced kettlebell lifter.

Scott breaks down his guide into four chapters.

Kettlebell for Sport, Strength and Fitness is a decent intro to the Kettlbell Sport, but severely overpriced for what you actually get. The book includes good descriptions of many lifts that can be done with a kettlebell, but each are limited to only a couple of paragraphs. Descriptions of the actual competition lifts (jerk, snatch, long cycle, etc) are short and lack technical specifics. I would have preferred more in depth discussions of the basics instead pages wasted on the bottoms-up variant of nearly every lift. Some of the pictures are good. Others are not. The pictures of the grip technique are so small and low resolution that they are nearly unhelpful. If this had been released as an E-Book in the single-digit price range I would call it a worthy purchase. At the current list price you're better off skipping it and getting your Kettlebell Sport education through some careful you-tubing.

If you want to get a proper perspective for Kettlebell Lifting, get this book. All the other ones I've seen are about working out with a kettlebell - not about Kettlebell Lifting. If you want to learn the classical lifts, Jerk, Clean, and Snatch, this is the book you want.

This book clearly defines the programming necessary for beginners, intermediate and pro alike. There are also pages dedicated to people who pursue other forms of fitness such as power lifting or bodybuilding and just want to use KB's to improve their fitness,. I know for me I am just starting out in training for the kb sport and I was a little confused as to how the timing went. Now I am clear and happy as a clam...with kettlebells. Although I wish I could find a kb gym close by but oh well.
