As you know I’ve been hard at work at kettlebell juggling in my own training lately. People look at me and can’t believe some of the skills I pull off (and I thank them for their complements). Still I believe there is even further to go with kettlebell juggling. Sure, some of the tricks I’ve pulled off are great put there are some others that have some skills that make my jaw drop.
Check out this video entitled James Bond Kettlebell Juggling with Viacheslav Borisov.
There are several things amazing about this one.
1) It’s an over three minute flow without a single drop
2) And the whole time he is doing some very tricky skills like double and triple flips and not just basic ones to the front.
2) He’s doing it in a suit! (this probably doesn’t make it any harder but it looks cool and you have to enjoy the James Bond theme)
Unfortunately this video doesn’t state the weight of this bell. I would wager it’s a 16kg but I’m really not sure of it.
Now here is another amazing kettlebell juggling video. Here the weight is explicitly stated at 36kg or 79 lbs.
And you can see Serg Derevenets pull off some amazing moves like double and triple overhead flips and spins with this heavy weight. Even though these moves aren’t all strung together like in the previous one, a single move like these is quite amazing. Plus you get to see a few misses which is always fun. No matter how good you are if you push the boundaries you will drop it.
As far as I’ve gone by watching these two athletes makes me want to do much more. As you can tell by their names they’re not from the US. Likely these two having lots of experience in kettlebells (probably competing in Girevoy Sport at one time or currently) and possibly doing these things on a professional basis.
