Yes it’s finally here…Flaming Kettlebell Juggling.
This idea first came to be after interaction with Johnny Domino at the Become an Oldtime Strongman Workshop with Dennis Roger last year. Johnny is an interesting fellow, performing in a burlesque show as a strongman. He was telling us about a certain “incident” with fire involved and from that subject this idea came up.
Fast forward a number of months and I finally get everything ready to try it out. It worked but I wasn’t happy with the skills I accomplished in that manner.
This past weekend, on Saturday night at the Wizards of Strength workshop, it was time to set some world records, and otherwise to some new and awesome things. I figured it was the perfect time to do it again. I was very happy with the skills I pulled off, mainly the over the shoulder toss, that I couldn’t quite get the first time I did it. This is much harder than normal juggling, what with wearing welding gloves, in the dark and the kettlebell being on fire.
This was something I wanted to do, as its never been done before in this manner to the best of my knowledge.
But I don’t recommend you try this at home. What I do recommend is regular kettlebell juggling, where the kettlebell isn’t on fire. That’s great for everyone.
