10 Pound Stone Padlocks
Train with the authentic training tools of the Shaolin Monks.
Shaolin Monks have known the value of stone padlock training since the Han Dynasty, over 2000 years ago.
These stone weights are called stone padlocks as they resemble traditional Chinese padlocks.
"When learning a new form of strength training, allow your mind to ebb and flow with the new paradigm. Alter your own perception to absorb the experience like you did as a child. Dick "Smitty" Smith, my coach at York, would say,"Don't try. Do." and this is the essence of learning like a child." Roger LaPointe
Stone Padlocks can be used for a variety of upper body exercises. The 10 Pound Stone Padlocks are particularly effective for practicing striking movements which can increase your punching power. No other implement stresses the wrists as effectively during this movement.
The Shaolin Monks perform a variety of exercises with stone padlocks. They use the smaller sized Padlocks for striking movements, as mentioned above, and favor a snatch-type movement with the heavier padlocks. These weights are used for hundreds or perhaps thousands of movements per day by Monks in training.
Stone Padlock exercises produce phenomenal full body conditioning, a grip of steel and a training edge that make the Shaolin Monks some of the fiercest fighters the world has ever known.
The video below shows some interesting manuvers being done with an obviously much heavier than 10 pound stone.

These implements are hand carved out of granite and made to the exact specifications that Shaolin Monks have been using for centuries. Exercises with these implements spread to a number of regions and are thought to be the inspiration for many kettlebell training ideas that have surfaced in recent history.
