Kettlebell Exercises are a great way to build strength, mobility and coordination in new ways. Have a look through these 7 and choose a few new exercises to augment your quest to become a better, stronger and fitter athlete.
The Kettlebell as we know it today originated in Russia approximately 350 years ago. The first appearance of the word in a Russian dictionary appeared in 1704. They were originally used as handled counterweights to weigh out dry goods on market scales.
Pavel Tsatsouline is often credited at the man that brought the Russian Kettlebell to the USA in 1988.
A former Soviet Special Forces physical training instructor, Pavel became a Subject Matter Expert to the elite of US military and law enforcement, including the Marine Corps, the Secret Service, and the Navy SEALs. His training system has been implemented by special operations units in two countries closely allied with the US. Pavel founded StrongFirst, the “school of strength”, to bring “low tech/high concept” methods of achieving high performance and resilience to men and women from all walks of life, not just elite warriors and athletes.¹
