ABOUT VINTAGE STRENGTH

Vintage Strength is a separate event, created for purpose of bridging the gap between fitness enthusiasts and Kettlebell Sport.

There are two Vintage Strength events for this competition:


1. Two Arm Long Cycle (TALC)

Women only, 10 minutes: 8kg, 12kg, 16kg, 20kg, 24kg, 28kg, 32kg - lifter will complete as many repetitions as possible in 10 minutes without putting kettlebells down.


2. Traditional Mace or Gada
In this event, the lifter will complete as many repetitions as possible in 5 minutes without putting the mace down.The lifter will start with the mace on the floor and either throw or swing the club up to start. A complete repetition includes a swing to to the left and one to the right (or vice versa) to achieve one point. A swing to only one side achieves .5 point. The lifter has to reverse the swing when the mace head is over their shoulder, both on the left and the right sides. The lifter has to aim for a non-stop continuous flowing movement without rests or breaks.


The count is given when the mace comes to a complete lockout in front of the body and the hands reach the belly button. Hands not reaching the belly button (chest Swing) will result in stop set. The lifter must also complete a full back swing with the hands reaching behind the head, if the lifter doesn’t complete the back swing than no point awarded but may continue to lift.

Women will have the option of lifting mace clubs weighing 10 or 15 lbs men will have the option of 15 or 20 lbs.


A coefficient will be used to determine a winner.
