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.Read more ›
