◾Long Cycle
◾Half snatch

Each athlete has 30 min to perform as many repetitions as possible without placing his/ her kettlebell down. The athlete may change hands at will. If the athlete puts the kettlebell down before the 30 minutes are over, his results will be voided (score = 0).

Athletes must compete in the same discipline at each of the 3 stages throughout the league, but may use different kettlebell sizes. If any athlete wants to, it is possible to compete in more than one discipline, but it recuires at least one submission for each discipline at each of the 3 stages.

Athletes compete according to their discipline and weight category, using a coefficient based on the kettlebell size they chose to lift.

Weight divisions
◾Women: -60, 60-70, +70kg
◾Men: -75, 75-85, +85kg
◾Weight fluctuations: an athlete may end up being in different weight classes over the course of a year. However, his/her heaviest weight category will be used for the final score.
◾In the case of a tie, the athlete with the lowest body weight wins.

Age divisions
Age is calculated according to the athlete’s year of birth, NOT the actual birthday.
◾Junior division: Under 15 ( use the women KB coefficients)
◾Open division: 15-49 years
◾Veteran division: Over 50 (Veterans are free to compete in the open class)
