Kettlebell sport, competitions started in Europe more than 60 years ago and are based on the original purist forms of kettlebell lifting. Training in this specialized manner requires a lot of relative strength and determination. Training an efficient bodily response to the stressors induced by long periods of physical activity enables lifters to focus on technical precision, breath control, and energy conservation. Thus, success in kettlebell sport is as much a mental achievement as it is a physical one.
Kettlebell competitions are one of the fastest growing forms of sport in American culture.
The two main competitions in Kettlebell Sport are:
- Jerk and Snatch Biathlon
- Long Cycle Clean to Chest and Jerk
