Kettlebell Training – How Did it All Begin?
Kettlebells have become hugely popular in the past few decades, with very good reason. From diehard fitness enthusiasts to clients looking for a new workout regimen, kettlebells appeal to many.
History of the kettlebell
Kettlebell training can be traced back many centuries from the humble beginnings in Russian villages to the center stage of the global fitness industry.
As a personal trainer, you must be aware of the amazing benefits of this training tool and the huge opportunities a qualified fitness instructor can derive from choosing to specialize in kettlebell training.
The Original Purpose of Kettlebells
You will be surprised to know that in medieval Russia, kettlebells were actually used as a weight to measure grains in farmer markets. And as bored farmers looked for ways to entertain themselves throughout the day, they started playing around with the kettlebell. This light-hearted entertainment gradually developed into a competitive sport and was a huge draw during village festivals across Russia.
Apart from Russia, there is evidence found in the history of kettlebell training which indicates that similar tools were used for serious physical training by monks in China.
Germany too, with its rich heritage of physical training, has strong claims regarding the spread of kettlebell training. Photographs dated before the 1900s show German strongmen and women using kettlebells in competitions to perform feats such as the extended lateral position and the curved arm press.
In fact, there are hundreds of German diaries and training manuals that indicate the use of kettlebells throughout the 18th and 19th centuries; albeit under different names. The German fitness instructor Friedrich Ludwig even introduced a fitness regimen wherein students under him regularly used the kettlebell for training purpose.
The spread of Kettlebell Training
The spread of kettlebells as a training tool may be attributed to wandering entertainers, strongmen and circus performers. They roamed the villages of Russia, came across the kettlebell and appreciated its efficacy in increasing strength, flexibility, and endurance. They practiced regularly with kettlebells for various performances, thereby popularizing its use in fitness training.
The year 1885 marks a landmark in the history of kettlebell training. In this year, the Circle for Amateur Athletics was founded in Russia which was probably the first organized body to introduce competitive kettlebell events.
Then around the nineteenth century, Dr. Vladislav Krayevsky; personal physician to the Czar realized the true potential of kettlebell training in sports medicine. He convinced the Czar to introduce kettlebell training for the army; thereby popularizing them further.
The nineteenth century was also the time for travel and exchange of ideas. Performers and entertainers moved across continents and it was probably through such exchanges that kettlebells arrived in the USA. Even then, in those early years, kettlebells were confined to an exclusive circle of fitness enthusiasts and did not enjoy the mass appeal that was evident in Russia.
The Giant Leap
During the World War years, kettlebells lost favor in the West probably due to its Russian origin. It was popularized again by Pavel Tsatsouline, a Russian immigrant to the US, who started kettlebell training sessions in the late 90s.
The kettlebell hasn’t looked back since. From the US, it has spread across continents and is now a regular feature in fitness around the World.
