    I don't think it's that. I find the metric system to be very user friendly. There's some psychological thing in giving a nickname to some person/place/thing. "I pressed THE BEAST" sounds more thrilling and victorious than "I pressed 48 kilograms."

    Hehe! I thought of that one, too, but I'm sure it's not PC...

    All kettlebells larger than 32 KG are considered to be Bulldogs. The Beast is still the Beast however it is also a Bulldog along with the 36 KG and 44 KG. In addition the in between weights like the 36 KG and 44 KG are not given nicknames because they weakly curcumvent the traditional 1/2 pood jump, hence making them undeserving . At the RKC we have our traditions.

    Not sure we want to get it confused with this Thor's hammer:

    Having said that, this is only 11 lbs
