Someone recently asked where I came up with the name “Iron Tamer”.

Like most things related to my training and business, I owe it to Pavel.

In the Russian Kettlebell Challenge , the book that started the American Kettlebell Revolution, Pavel quotes Olympic weightlifting legend Yuri Vlasov. He called his training “a jolly game of taming iron.”

I found this clip of Vlasov on youtube. Enjoy.
