      fixation. If the judge does not see a distinguishable second knee bend, you will receive a no-count.
    3. Some competitors are unable to fully extend (straighten) their elbows. Regardless, elbow fixation (no movement) is required once the 2nd knee bend is completed and
      prior to extending (straightening) and fixing your knees. If the judge sees movement in your elbow after you extend your knees, you will receive a no-count.

    5. If your arm is fixed but not in a 90+ degree position, you will receive a no-count.

Event FAQs

What is the IKFF ranking table and why did it change?

The idea of ranking tables comes from the Unified Sports Classification System of the USSR, which specified test standards necessary for the conferment of sport ranks and


titles. Developing our own set of standards in the IKFF ranking table is a way of honoring Kettlebell Sport's heritage and culture while at the same time being reflective of the


current levels of lifters outside of Russia and the former Soviet Union. The ranking system should be interpreted as a set of benchmarks or goals on which lifters can base their


training progressions - similar to the belt system in martial arts (you could even think of the rank "Master of Sport" as comparable to a Kettlebell Sport black belt).


The IKFF has always prided itself on being a progressive organization. If we see a better way to do things, we evolve. We saw a need to update our rankings in an effort to grow


the sport and improve the performance and safety of our competitors.


This most recent version of the IKFF ranking table has a few important changes including the addition of the Chair Press event, revisions to the five minute events, and further


development of the women's single and double kettlebell events. We hope the lifting community finds the table both fair to their current abilities and forward looking into the


future of our sport. We gladly anticipate the need to make further edits and revisions as you, the lifters, grow stronger and advance the sport.

I am new to the sport, how should I prepare?

It is highly recommended to meet with an experienced coach to obtain trianing guidelines. Since the competition is based on completing good repetitions within a five or ten


minute time frame, your training program should be centered around timed sets, pacing your repetitions, volume, and working on your technique for each lift that you will be


performing.
