For anyone who takes fitness and sports seriously, learning for the first time about Pavel Tsatsouline is like being inducted into a secret club. Before, you thought you had a grasp on how to train; after, you realize you knew very little about strength. And the kicker is that the information and techniques he espouses, while technical and often derived from the world of competitive weightlifting, apply to absolutely everyone.

When our Masters, Seniors, and Team Leaders checked into their hotel rooms before our recent meeting, each was greeted by a bottle of vodka, a jar of pickles, and a note welcoming them to the Phase II of the Russian kettlebell invasion. Up until that point, it had been easier to find honest arm measurements than a kettlebell, as Dr. Randall Strossen put it. Fast-forward fifteen years. Today you would be hard pressed to find a gym in the United States that does not have kettlebells.

At first, Vicky Wilson stared at the curious-looking, flat-bottomed cannon ball with a handle. In the high-tech world of fitness, the cast iron kettlebell was not sleek or sexy. It seemed intimidating. That was three months ago. Today, Wilson, a year-old stay-at-home mother of three, grabs hold of an pound kettlebell with both hands and circles it around her head several times ó known as the halo maneuver ó to warm up her shoulders. Wilson, like many others around the country, is discovering the newest fitness trend that dates back several centuries in Russia. For comrades who really like to throw their weight around, kettlebells go up to 48 kg pounds.
