The idea for this came back in December at the Oldtime Strongman Workshop with Dennis Rogers. One of the attendees and burlesque strongman, Johnny Domino, was telling a story about a flaming injury he sustained while trying a new trick (I can’t go into the full details but we were laughing our butts off). Somehow from that we got to the idea that I should light a kettlebell on fire and juggle it.
It took some prep work and getting together, and now it’s finally happened.
WARNING: While I do recommend kettlebell juggling to anyone that wants to try it, I do not recommend trying this. It is very dangerous, the ball of fire huge, and the potential to burn yourself is big. Even though I had a pretty good setup I still burnt some of my hair and came close to catching my face on fire. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME.
Also this is only the trailer, a short glimpse into what happened. I’ll be releasing the full video later.
It doesn’t take more strength, it doesn’t take more conditioning, it just takes more balls!
