Long-Cycle Set (GS Style – double bells or one switch single) – 

long cycle practice

The Girevoy Sport Long-Cycle is a test of strength, power, and toughness. The simplicity of this exercise is only outmatched by its extreme effectiveness. You will build mental and physical toughness when you take on this beast. Normally the GS version is 10 minutes on the platform, this exhibition event will only be 5 minutes without setting the bells down. Are you tough enough?

The rules to this one are simple:

A single set consisting of two phases, a Clean and a Jerk = 1 rep, performed within five minutes.

Men use two kettlebells – Women use one and are allowed one hand switch.

Once the Kettlebells touch the ground the set is terminated.

Jerk Off Tournament –

The Jerk-Off Tournament is a one-on-one bracket style scrap for glory!!!

The Kettlebell Jerk is a power movement that starts in the rack and ends with the kettlebell(s) locked out overhead. Rinse and Repeat.

The tournament will pit athletes against each other for 3 minute sets. The most reps in that round will move on to the next round.

Max Strict Pull-up Challenge – 

pull-up challenge

Good at pull-ups? Crank out as many strict pullups as you can and win a prize. No kipping, swinging or bicycling your way up.  Start from a dead hang and pull until your chin is above the bar.  Once your hands leave the bar, your set is terminated.
