The One Hour Long Cycle is an annual event that features both amateur and professional kettlebell lifters exercising in solidarity for a charitable cause. Anyone is allowed to participate as an individual or part of a team. While there are several locations that participants can go to, this event can also be done in the comfort of one’s own home.
What an accomplishment just to compete in the Kettlebell Sport World Championships! Her backstory with kettlebells chronicles a decade-long appreciation for them since she was 10. An interesting note in the article mentions how she routinely works out with 24kg (53-pound kettlebells), however, the class she is competing in (amateur) requires 16kg (35-pound kettlebells) to be used. For perspective, the average man is suggested to use a 35-pound kettlebell as an introductory weight for short-duration workouts. We have no doubt Ms. Tyjeski could compete in the professional category when the time is right and if she sees fit!
Retiree Mike de Sosa dreamed of cycling on the highest paved roads in each of the 48 Continental United States. After completing this quest in nearly 40 states, those dreams came crashing down. A driver in a pick-up truck ran into Mr. de Sosa, sparing his life but leaving the cyclist with serious injuries. Back injuries, broken bones, and a titanium rod inserted into his leg left a painful reminder of how close he came to completing his goal.
It turns out, there are two businesses named Kettlebell Kitchen. The U.S.-based business I found on Google and another out of the U.K. which is the one the article references. Both businesses specialize in healthy meal preparation in their respective countries. In addition, they each seem to have a substantial following and are well-received. It’s quite a strange coincidence indeed.
According to the Bloomberg article from December 2017, India is Getting Fat, there has been a 2500% increase in male obesity since 1975. It would be unfair to solely single out India, as I believe the world, in general, has become a lot more sedentary.
This will be the 2nd year of the Kettlebell Grip Strength Competition in Nanaimo, British Columbia. It’s being held at the Coast Bastion Hotel across the Strait of Georgia from Vancouver. While competitors won’t qualify for advancing to larger competitions, it is expected that next year will offer prizes and rewards.
There really is no incorrect weight when it comes to choosing a kettlebell. Currently, I use a 25 lb. weight for all of my kettlebell exercises. Although, I do feel a little intimidated when I get emails from trainers saying that men should be using a 35 lb. to 50 lb. kettlebell when starting out. I think more factors need to be considered other than gender to make an appropriate suggestion.
Customer relations is one thing. Having a product of extreme quality and craftsmanship is another. There are many brands to choose from. Deciding on which one to select can be a daunting task. Although, if you’re looking for the premium choice, keep reading as to why Kettlebell Kings stands out from the competition.
Fitness guru Jillian Michaels recently posted an Instagram video of her working out with kettlebells. It looks intense, especially the first segment shown. Normally kettlebells are used for movement exercises, but Jillian had something else in mind. Incredibly, she uses two kettlebells as anchors that never move from the ground. Just watch her video below.
The kettlebell squat is a great way to build strength in your lower body. It’s also fantastic at helping to improve stability and mobility. Watching Preity’s kettlebell workout video, you can see just how fluid the whole exercise is. At 43, she looks extremely limber and fit! I also couldn’t help but notice the kettlebell rack behind her. The kettlebells at the bottom of the rack are monstrous!
