Best kettlebell lifter in the US?
From KataStrength.com, a brief profile on Lorna Kleidman, who “burst on the scene in 2007 at the IGSF Worlds where she became the first American (female or male) to be internationally recognized with the International Master of Sport ranking in kettlebell sport. Since then, she has competed with great success overseas, becoming World Champion in both her age group and open category.” Lorna’s also written Body Sculpting with Kettlebells for Women.
Check out the videos! She eats a 20 kg (44 lb) bell for breakfast and follows it up with a KB biathlon. Also notice how healthy and strong she looks. Just one more of the zillion reasons to lift heavy weights, ladies.
