USGSI Certification Requirements

Attendees taking the USGSI certification course must meet the following criteria in order to earn their diploma:

  1. Technique of the exercise performance
  2. Safety of performing GS exercises and safety gears
  3. Teaching skills
  4. Pass the lifting test (Snatch and Jerk)


The Girevoy Sport is rich with various exercises which are classified as follows: classic (competitive), assisting, and stunt (untraditional lifts).

For this part of the certification you will concentrate on the proper technique of performing classic exercises such as Jerk, Snatch and Long Cycle.

Men, 24kg Girya/Kettlebell Veterans 40+ years old, 24kg Giri/Kettlebell
Weight Class kg/lbs Jerk + Snatch (L+R) Total
60 / 132 27
65 / 143 30
70 / 154 35
75 / 165 40
80 / 176 45
90 / 198 53
90+ / 198+ 60
Weight Class kg/lbs Jerk + Snatch (L+R) Total
60 / 132 21
65 / 143 26
70 / 154 32
75 / 165 35
80 / 176 38
90 / 198 46
90+ / 198+ 53

Here's a few examples on how to calculate your Jerk and Snatch totals:

If your goal is 21 total reps then you should Jerk about 11 reps and Snatch each hand 10 reps. Snatch counts 10+10 = 20, then divide by 2. Then just add your Jerk total (11 reps) plus your Snatch total (10 reps) = 21 total reps.

Another example, if you Jerked only 5 reps then you should snatch 32 reps (add left + right hand) and then divide it by 2 (32 / 2 = 16) which equals 16. So your final calculation would be 5 Jerks + 16 Snatches = 21 total reps.
