Thumbs up Pood?

Hey guys,

I am a deployed Soldier in Baghdad, and was intrigued by the CrossFit workouts, so I started it up about a week and a half ago. It's been great so far. This stuff is really kicking my butt, and I was a gym-freak throughout my first few months deployed (weights and cardio).

1. What is pood? I've seen it referenced on a couple of the WODs so far...

2. Are there any other Soldiers on Camp Liberty doing this that anyone knows of? It'd be great to have an accountability partner.

Re: Pood?

A pood is a Russian measurement, usually referring to kettlebells, which translates to 16kg or about 35 pounds.

Check out the FAQ, Mike - there's a lot of great info in there, and you'll probably end up getting quicker answers.

Stay safe out there.
