Yesterday a friend of mine and a KTCC student asked me a very interesting question. The question went like this:
I was practicing snatch and swings today
I observed that snatch and cleans etc are all better done softstyle
but swings alone as a workout can only be effective Hardstyle
what do you think?"
If you are aware about kettlebell lifting, then you will probably know that there are two different styles of kettlebell lifting- hardstyle and softstyle. Most of us were made aware of kettlebells by the so called "hard"style group of lifters. However, when kettlebells were used only (or mostly) in Russia, there was no such thing as hardstyle of kettlebell lifting, or atleast it wasn't really popularly used by the majority. The style that is popularly used in Russia, and also used by world champion kettlebell lifters is the so called "soft"style of kettlebell lifting.
