Historically the Kettlebell was developed by Russia in the 1700s, although some reports say that the first Kettlebells were found in Athens, Greece.
It’s documented that the soviet army used kettlebells as part of their strength and conditioning routine.
Today, Kettlebells can be seen in gyms worldwide as well as Kettlebell sport competitions that require strength, power, skill and endurance. Kettlebell Sport Lifters are required to complete as many repetitions for as long as 10 minutes.
Kettlebell sizes range from 4kg to 48kg, because a kettlebell is shaped differently than a dumbbell, an 8kg kettlebell can actually feel a bit heavy or awkward. This is because the kettlebell’s center of mass is extended farther out from your body, so it can be tougher to handle and maneuver – which is one reason why kettlebells can be so effective at improving your strength, balance, and explosiveness.
