Everyone involved with the Beast of the East Fitness Competition being held here in Connecticut October 8-9, 2011 is VERY excited about this new event! The event is The IKFF East Coast Kettlebell Beast that is now part of The Beast of the East Fitness Competition. The IKFF East Coast Kettlebell Beast will be a FULLY SANCTIONED IKFF Kettlebell Competition!
There are plenty more details to follow, but the competition will be open to men and women and there will be multiple weight classes and Kettlebell weights as per IKFF guidelines.
Events will include the Kettlebell Snatch, Kettlebell Jerk, Kettlebell Long Cycle (Clean and Jerk) and Biathalon (Snatch and Jerk). Since most of us involved with The Beast of the East are a little crazy – it’s a CrossFit thing – there will also be some non-sanctioned events like a Turkish Get Up Competition and some others that will be open to anyone who wants to give them a shot – and sign the waiver 😉
