The History of Kettlebell Training
Kettlebell training has been used to develop endurance and strength for centuries. The exact origin of kettlebells is a matter of debate, but some people believe they were developed in Ancient Greece.
The history of kettlebells was first recorded at the beginning of 18th Century in Russia. The word “Girya”, which means kettlebell, first appeared in the Russian Dictionary in 1704.
Kettlebells were used as weights, which were used to measure the weight of grains and other goods during this time.
Vendors started lifting and swinging kettlebells during fairs and festivals in 18th Century. People lifted the kettlebells to show their strength and they came to realize the health benefits of kettlebells.
Dr. Vladislav Kraevsky introduced the use of kettlebells to the Russian people. In Cape Town, kettlebell training has become very popular. There are now a number of kettlebell courses Cape Town that offer personal trainers and fitness enthusiasts Worldwide kettlebell qualifications.
In the beginning of the 20th Century, strong men, physical culturists, and circus performers like Eugene Sandow, Edgar Mueller, and Arthur Saxon were exposed to Russian kettlebell training.
Therefore, these strong men started using kettlebells when they were training and doing other performances. This helped to introduce kettlebell training to a wider audience out of Russia.
Kettlebell training flourished in the former Soviet Union. A lot of people in rural areas, Olympic athletes, and the military started training with kettlebells regularly. In fact, Soviet Olympic weightlifters used kettlebells build more strength.
The Soviet government realized in 1981 the benefits of kettlebells training so the government enforced mandatory kettlebell training for the people. The government relied on the kettlebell to increase the productivity of the citizens and to decrease the healthcare of the country.
These days, there are some of the countries in the old eastern bloc that still rely on kettlebell training to supplement the training of their armed forces and athletes.
Kettlebell lifting was developed into an official sport and the first competition was in 1948. This sport made its way into the western world.
