Kettlebell sport or Girevoy Sport is a strength training modality focused on endurance or work capacity.
Traditional sport sets are up to a 10-minute time cap with the three main lifts. These are Snatch, Jerk and Clean and Jer,k otherwise called Long Cycle.
Kettlebells are not allowed to be set down; if they are, the set is finished. This makes kettlebell sport mentally challenging as well as physically.
