I see this term used all the time by Party Members but don't know what it means. Is 1 pood = 16 kg = ~ 35 lbs. ? It seems that the progression in starting KB training is as follows: 1) get and watch the video, 2) start with dumbells, 3) when one can do the exercises in good form with a 35-40 dumbbell, get a 1 "pood" KB. How would a 4 kg or 8 kg fit into this training scheme, if at all? Guess being a new Member to the Party, I'm confused with the many training schemes followed by experienced comrades. Clarence Bass talks about empty milk containers filled with water as starter. Any advise or hints would be much appreciated since I'm trying to integrate KBs into my PTP training. Thanks!
