What is the Iron Maiden?

It’s a test of a woman’s strength, performed at Russian Kettlebell Certification events.

The three lifts are:
(1) Pull Up with the weight strapped to your waist
(2) Strict Military Press
(3) Pistol

The men’s who complete it with the 48kg (106lb) kettlebell are called Beast Tamers.

The women who use the 24kg (53lb) kettlebell are called Iron Maidens.

Val was the 3rd woman in 10 years to complete the Iron Maiden challenge successfully.
