September 6 Kettlebell Competition a Week Away!

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 September 6.   It will be fun, motivational, and inspiring for not just you, but everyone around you:)

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!

ANNOUNCEMENT: We need volunteers for the event.  If you would like to help us out on that Saturday morning, we could really use your help.  The event will likely last between 8am-12noon.  Any help during that time is greatly appreciated, so please respond via email if you can volunteer!

Events to choose from are:

Double Half Snatch
Double Clean and Jerk
Double Jerk
Single Snatch
Single Clean and Jerk
Single 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 September 6, 2014 for our Regional BOLT kettlebell competition!
