Kettlebell Competition on February 8, 2014

Competition is one of the best environments to test both your progress and performance.  Come see how you compare to your personal bests by joining us on February 8!  It will be fun, motivational, and inspiring for not just you, but everyone around you:)

Mark your calendar and spread the word for us please.  February 8, 2014 will be the first kettlebell competition of the year.  Come test your strength, and your endurance, in this fun event.  Most of our regular students at Maryland Kettlebells would perform great in these competitions, because every day you train for an event like this!

Events to choose from are:

Double Half Snatch
Double Jerk
Single Snatch
Single Clean and Jerk
Competitors will be divided by gender, age, and weight class.  All events will last 10 minutes, and competitors will be allowed to place the kettlebell down on the floor or switch hands as many times as they wish during those 10 minutes.  Likewise, competitors can pick their own kettlebell sizes for all events.
Results and performance will be based on volume, which means weight multiplied by repetitions.  That means that strength matters, not just endurance.  Generally speaking, a person who can move heavier loads for longer periods of time will win in these events. 
So please bring your friends and family out to join us on February 8, 2014 for our first BOLT kettlebell competition!

And please feel free to forward this email onto anyone who you feel might be interested in competing:)
