It is possible to attempt an IKMF record with a single kettlebell and multi switch in the 4 competition disciplines,
or in Long Cycle with 2 kettlebells according to traditional GS rules.
For events from 2 hours and up, some prohibitions are lifted to ensure the athletes safety.
Tape (and gymnastic grips) for hand protection is allowed, but no gloves.
The athlete may rest in a static hang position, perform low amplitudes swings between reps without having to change sides or even place the kettlebell on the shoulder. The athlete may also use 2
hands on the kettlebell while resting elbows on the knees in all disciplines.
It is however still forbidden to place the kettlebell on the ground during the event.
The athlete may also place the kettlebell on the ground for 5 minutes every hour during the day, and for 10 minutes every hour during the night (the clock must keep running).
The athlete may also place the kettlebell on the ground freely at will while the clock keeps running.
Doping is prohibited at IKMF,
all athletes tested positive for an anti-doping test will be severely punished or banned from IKMF.
