As most of you already know, I compete in a unique sport known as Kettlebell Sport . My next competition is in 2 weeks and I'm super excited! I will be lifting a 35lbs kettlebell over head in a lift called the Snatch. In competition, I will be judged on execution and proficiency of each repetition. I will have 10 minutes to swing the bell between my thighs (with one arm) and catching it over head (with my arm locked out) as fast and as many times as I can with immaculate form. This Russian sport requires: focus, great conditioning, skill, strength and crazy stamina. I'll keep you posted on the results.
