Girevoy (Kettlebell) Sport

Girevoy Sport is one of the newest, most absolutely brutal sports in the UK. Originating in Cold War-era Russia in 1986, the rules are simple; you have 10 minutes to perform as many reps as possible without putting the kettlebells down.
It is one of the toughest competitive events on the planet. It’s also one of the most beneficial endeavors you can undertake as you try to improve your physical and mental wellbeing. Yeah, it’s hard!
Unlike the Russian Hardstyle, which is more strength-oriented, to be successful at Girevoy Sport (GS) requires strength, endurance and mental toughness. GS, being a sport, means there are also rankings up for grabs based on your weight, the size of the kettlebell(s) used and the amount of reps completed in one of two events; the Biathlon and the Long Cycle.
