100-pood* kettlebell (Stopoodovaya Girya)
In 2012, the Ural Kettlebell craftsmen created a 100-pood kettlebell - a truly momentous achievement. This enormous kettlebell weighing 1,638 kg was written into the Russian Book of Records as the heaviest kettlebell in the world.
* Pood is a unit of weight of the Imperial Russian weight measurement system. It is approximately 16.38 kilograms. The expression Сто пудов (Sto poodoff) - "Hundred poods" means "very large amount". In modern colloquial Russian it is used in generic meanings of "very much" and "very", as well as "most surely"; the adjective 'stopudovy' and the adverb 'stopudovo' are also used in the latter meaning.

“This is not just a unique monument, but a singular symbol of confidence and reliability”- says the brand owner Artem Artemiev. – “We keep receiving requests for manufacturing this kind of a kettlebell.
