For the first time this year the UT is offering courses in kettlebell sport. The kettlebell is an iron cast ball with a handle on it, which is often used in gyms and crossfit boxes as training equipment. In the sport, the goal is to get as many repetitions in 10 minutes of a certain movement in one of these three disciplines:

1. Snatch
2. Long cycle (clean and jerk) 
3. Biathlon (one 10-minute set of jerk and one 10-minute set of snatch) 

Kettlebell sport is an unique combination of endurance and strength in which almost all patterns of movement are represented (squatting, pushing, pulling, and bending), which makes it a very complete workout. The weights with which you can train, range from 6 to 24 kg, so this course is suited for people of all fitness levels. 

During this first course we will focus on the basics of kettlebell sports. At the end you will be able to do a 10-minute snatch set with a weight suited for your own fitness level and strength.
