What is a Pood?

Convert your kettlebell weight from poods to kilograms and pounds.


  • In Russia, kettlebells are measured in poods.
  • A Pood (Russian: пуд, pud), is a unit of mass equal to 40 funt (фунт, Russian pound).
  • It is approximately 16.38 kilograms (36.11 pounds) and is used in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. The Crossfit® community tends to use pood rather than KG or Lbs.
  • Traditionally kettlebells came in 1 pood (16 KG), 1.5 pood (24 KG) and 2 pood (32 KG) sizes.
  • According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary pood is from the old Russian pud and is derived from Old Norse pund (pound) & the first known use of the word was in 1554.
