4. CC GI - Girevoy Instruction (Kettlebell Endurance)

Girevoy Sport uses a very different technique, which is referred to as Soft Style Kettlebell Lifting. This is an endurance-focused method of lifting a weight in a more fluid fashion, with emphasis on strategic relaxation and tension. Hard Style is a strength-focused practice used in all other Kettlebell Academy training sessions. The two styles greatly compliment each other, after significant amounts of practice and instruction. 

This is an advanced level session for members who have achieved reasonable mastery of kettlebell lifting and either wish to prepare for Girevoy Sport (Kettlebell Sport), are curious about it or desire to boost their strength endurance and stamina.
