Getting up and close with the Kettlebell today.  Some quick KB facts to enrich your Wednesday:

  • Created in the 1700s by the Russian army to impress the girls
  • Also known as a “girya”
  • The men who lifted these weights were called “gireviks”
  • Traditionally measured by the “pood”.  1 pood = 16 kg = 35 lbs
  • This type of training was also used by monks with a slightly different looking piece of equipment.  Shi-SuoGuong (The Art of Stone Padlock) predates kettlebells by thousands of years
  • The most common sizes they can be found range from 4kg (8 lbs) to 48 kgs (105 lbs)

Hope you learned something today.   If you already knew all of this stuff, I am very impressed/doubtful and you should definitely get back to work.  If you did, I give you permission to shut your mind off right now.

I drop knowlegde, not kettlebells,
