Steel Competition Kettlebells » GS Kettlebell
Kettlebell Sport, also known as Girevoy Sport (GS), is a highly challenging power-endurance sport performed with steel competition kettlebells. Unlike cast iron kettlebells popularised by Pavel Tsatsouline, Kettlebell Sport kettlebells are all the same size (regardless of weight) and are about the size of a 36kg cast iron kettlebell. There are standard co lours to differentiate the different weight sizes.
The three traditional Kettlebell Sport Lifts are the Jerk, Snatch, and Long Cycle (Clean & Jerk) and are typically performed non-stop for 10 minutes during which the competitor tried to maximise the number of reps performed in the 10 minute period.
