There are all kinds of hilarious answers to your question, but here is one that might actually be useful:

"about 16kg or 36 pounds"

according to wikipedia.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that Steven's was more useful. While your answer gave the information that was asked for, Steven's led the original poster (as well as others that have the same question) to the FAQ, which not only explains "pood," but myriad other tidbits of information regarding to the CrossFit way.

I personally find it "hilarious" that people's egos are so big that they come to the CF main page and don't feel that they need to read the "Start Here" section before they S-T-A-R-T. Then, when they realize that they don't know something, they come to the boards (or comments section) and ask questions like this instead of going back to the fundamentals (read: FAQ). Just like they'll refuse to work on the technique of their Air Squats, or Push Press, or any other fundamental CF movement.:stir:

I think one of CrossFit's greatest strengths is its ability to develop humility and the realization that the more you think you know...the less you actually know.

Angry Re: pood?

wow, I just came back to this after writing god knows how long ago to find that snide reply. Why don't you keep your self righteous indignations to yourself and forgive people when they don't happen to see every little bit...and btw, I did read through everything when I first started, but just so happened to miss that.

Re: pood?

I always wonder why would you take the time to start a thread to ask a question about the definition of a word, and then expect someone to take the time to answer you when it would take you 2 seconds to google it? I think a lil self-help would go a long way. And not picking out this particular poster, just in general. Whatever.

Re: pood?

CrossFit isn't just about using your body, its about using your brain as well - hence the rest day discussions on the main page. In the information age, if people can't take the 5 seconds to use Google they are deficient when it comes to self-help techniques.

I know Steven may have seemed snooty - but people want to be spoon fed so much lately its not surprising that he took a hiatus from the boards.
