Vasily Alexeyev using KettlebellPosted January 18, 2009 in Fitness
Some months ago, I was reading an article on the barbell press (pdf) by Mark Rippetoe, where he says:
Vasily Alexeyev, the “Big Russian” weightlifter from the 1970s and the strongest
presser in history, was not merely a fat man.
This made me google for Vasily Alexeyev and I came to <a href=
“http://www.oocities.org/colosseum/field/7342/Alxv1.html”>this gallery and to this image showing him clearly training with a kettlebell. The caption says:
To warm his muscles up before a training session Vasily “toyed” with this 72 kg (158.75 lb) weight.
Not a fat man indeed. And what about Valentin Dikul? Is he fat?
