1.10. What's a "pood?"

Russian measure used for kettlebells; common ones: 1 pood =36 lbs; 1.5 pood = 54 lbs; 2 pood = 72 lbs. Approx db equivalents are 35, 55, 70

Re: pound to pood conversion

Pood to Kilo to Pound conversion

1/2 pood = 8 kg = 17.6 lb
3/4 pood = 12 kg = 26.4 lb
1 pood = 16 kg = 35.2 lb
1 + 1/2 pood = 24 kg = 52.8 lb
2 pood = 32 kg = 70.4 lb
2 + 1/2 pood = 40 kg = 88 lb
3 pood = 48 kg = 105.6 lb

Not trying to sound short, but you would do yourself a great service by reading the entire FAQ
