If you think of kettlebells as a supplemental fitness tool, think again. Kettlebells are a whole new ballgame when it comes to improving your mental and physical metrics. It pushes the boundaries of human musculoskeletal capacity to do more, heavier, and longer.
Kettlebells are a highly competitive sport. Kettlebell athletes around the world train for decades to win championships and set world records in biathlon, longcycle, and snatch events.
Kettlebells may look simple, but they contain a lot of knowledge about sports mechanics and physiology. This is why professional training is necessary. Many people are practicing kettlebells without proper training and unknowingly develop bad habits such as overstraining, hyperventilation, and hyperextension.
Experienced kettlebell sports coaches help their students improve their skill level and avoid falling into these pitfalls at the same time. By acquiring professional skills, you’ll not only be able to increase your lifts quickly, but you’ll also ensure your safety.
Kettlebell sports have been around for about 60 years. In 1962, the first rules for the sport were established and it was recognized as an official sport in Russia. It was later recognized in the countries of the former Soviet Union. From this point on, coaching know-how was accumulated and “academies” for kettlebell sports were created and began to produce champions. All of them have an honorable history and have their own training methods. Some of the most well-organized academies are KETA Saint-Petersburg Academy in St. Petersburg, Chelyabinsk Chelyabinsk Academy, Rybinsk Rybinsk Academy, Smolensk Smolensk Academy, Lipetsk Lipetsk Academy, Kaluga Kaluga Academy, Far East FarEast Academy
The KETA Kettlebell Academy is led by founder Sergey Rachinski and five master coaches: Sergey Merculin, Ivan Denisov, Alexander Khvostov, and Ksenia Dedukhina. They are all Hall of Fame inductees and have earned the HMS rank. As of 2022, there will be no more than 20 people in the world with the HMS rank. In keeping with this prestige, more than half of the Russian national team is or has been trained at the KETA Academy. With its strong athletes and coaching staff, KETA Kettlebell Lifting Academy is one of the best kettlebell academies in Russia and the world.
