This has been a long time coming: I’ve created a series of 4-week Kettlebell Sport training programs! So many of you have asked me for programming but can’t afford to do my online coaching, which I totally understand (it’s a big commitment).
The programs do not include technique instruction (stay tuned for a more in-depth program coming later this year), but are perfect if you already know the technique and just want a specific program geared toward a particular Kettlebell Sport lift.
This video will take you through a basic introduction of kettlebell Long Cycle (clean and jerk). I describe the nuances of the clean, the rack position, and the jerk so you can put them all together and use them to train or compete in Long Cycle.

Kettlebell Sport is an endurance sport more than anything else – not just of the body, but of the mind. Lifters push through an immense amount of discomfort to get through the mental and physical battle of a 10 minute set.”What were you thinking while you were lifting?” is a common question from spectators, and as an athlete you often wonder whether everyone else on the platform next to you is struggling as much as you are. This series of posts is a chance to get a glimpse into the mind of a wide variety of lifters of all nationalities while completing a 10 minute set – male, female, beginner, elite, Bolt style, Girevoy Sport style, etc.
What is your athletic background? I played a few sports in high school, nothing intensely, and then after college, I joined a gym to take group fitness classes, which led to strength and conditioning workouts, which led to Kettlebell Sport.
If you are a female Kettlebell Sport lifter, you should know the name Kim Fox.
Kim is blasting through the “glass ceiling” in Kettlebell Sport, so to speak. Historically, women have only been allowed to compete in Snatch. Kim and Chelsey Marr took a big step for female athletes a few short weeks ago by showing the world there is no reason women should not compete with two kettlebells – and heavy ones, at that.
