As an expert in kettlebell training, you would, therefore, be expected to know everything about this unique training tool, including the history and origins of kettlebell training.
Kettlebells in Early Times
In ancient times, a type of equipment resembling today’s kettlebells was known to be used by the Greeks. It was known as the haltere and possibly used for fitness training.
Similar training tools were also used by the monks in ancient China to build strength, endurance, and flexibility.
However, the origins of the modern-day kettlebell are credited to the Russians.
Kettlebells in Russia is known as the ‘girya’, a term that has a close resemblance to the Persian term ‘giran’ which means anything difficult or heavy. The word girya first appeared in Russian dictionaries around 1704. The unit for measuring kettlebell weights in Russia is pood with one pood equal to 36.10lb or 16.38kg.
A Humble Beginning
The history of the kettlebell indicates that the origins of kettlebell training were in no way connected to serious physical training. The kettlebell or girya was used primarily in medieval Russian villages to measure weights of grain at crop markets.
Farmers got bored of waiting for their turns and often picked up the girya to keep themselves busy in friendly matches. Soon, the equipment became popular as an effective accompaniment to various performances across the countryside.
From the villages, the kettlebell spread to the towns and cities; again through the wandering circuses and acrobats.
In fact, the kettlebell became so popular across Russian villages and cities that the Circle for Amateur Athletics was founded in 1885 and held the first official kettlebell competition in Russia.
Sometime in the mid-nineteenth century, the Russian physician Dr. Vladislav Krayevsky noticed the huge potential of kettlebell training for enhancing strength and endurance. Being the personal physician of the Czar, he persuaded the king to include kettlebell training in the physical fitness regime of the Russian army.
This move further popularized the use of kettlebells in physical training across Russia and in the year 1948, kettlebell competition was declared a national sport in the nation.
Spread in the West
Kettlebells were introduced to the West through the travels and interactions between athletes and fitness enthusiasts of the east and the west. The early twentieth century was a time of the global exchange of ideas and the West (particularly the USA) embraced the approach of kettlebell training. In fact, the word kettlebell first appeared in English dictionaries during this time.
During the World Wars, the Russian kettlebell lost favor with the West. However, at the turn of this century, Pavel Tsatsouline, a Russian immigrant began teaching kettlebell training in the USA. It was through his efforts that the kettlebell gained popularity in the West once again.
