Girevoy (Kettlebell, handlebell , weightball) Sport (aka "GS"), as developed in Russia is now attracting highly committed
athletes from all parts of the world. This is not a sport for the faint hearted but attracts those who cannot resist the challenge
of developing remarkable strength/power endurance. The methods used in training are also excellent for general
physical preparation for other sports disciplines , whilst the specific competition lifts can be pursued as a personal
improvement exercise in itself...even if official competition is not pursued.
The sport lends itself to home training at the athletes convenience.
Worldwide there is a rapidly growing interest in this niche sport as athletes of all ages , especially those from
endurance and strength sports backgrounds are attracted to the unique challenges and fabulous physical rewards...at any age.
I am happy to pass on my training experiences thus far. Hopefully this site will cover many of the novice's FAQs.
If not , just ask! The Girevoy Sport section of the Australian Kettlebells forum is an excellent place to post questions.
