This book is designed to build strength and stamina without adding the unnecessary bulk of conventional bodybuilding programs. you can with a fixed weight in the events of the clean and jerk (two kettlebells), the single snatch, and the single push-press. It is a very popular sport in Eastern Europe and has been growing in the United States as well. Kettlebells, also called ring weights, come in many shapes and sizes. From cylinders to square blocks, the most common design resembles a cannonball with a handle on one side. This design has many advantages over the others, including the absence of sharp edges as well as an easier fit to the user’s body. These implements differ from dumbbells because the weight is distributed to one end rather than being even. This makes them ideal for performing ballistic, whole-body exercises such as cleans, snatches, and their variations.

This book contains the most basic and fundamental information for kettlebell training, grip! Many years ago I decided to dedicate a book on grips, after seeing many people fumble with kettlebell grips during transitions and exercises. Knowing how to grip/hold your kettlebell is extremely important for efficiency and safety. Why should you learn about grips? It is important to know and understand kettlebell grips for efficiency and being able to work the muscles intended for the exercise in question. Employing an incorrect grip can mean pain; being uncomfortable; cause for injury; exhausting grip, forearm, biceps or shoulder muscles and losing focus on the muscles targeted with a specific exercise. Why use different grips? If you're asking this question, then you're asking the right question because knowing a lot of grips is cool, but knowing why you would change grip or use one over the other is even cooler and the part you should really understand. During kettlebell training, you employ different grips to make certain exercises more efficient, but you also change grips to increase difficulty and challenge other muscle groups. Sometimes when your training gets stale you might even employ a different grip to please the mind. While knowing kettlebell grips and when to employ them is important and one of the kettlebell fundamentals, the second most important thing you should start looking into is racking a kettlebell. It might seem insignificant, but a lot hinges on how you rack your kettlebell, in fact, some people give up on kettlebell training because they can't get comfortable in the racking position or can't find the proper position for the bell to rest. This book contains over 25 kettlebell training grips and comes paired with a photo for each and everyone. This is it, this is what you'll be building the rest of your kettlebell journey upon, without this information you'll be fumbling around with the kettlebell and even after years of training still look like you just started.
