My dad is full of shit. He's had my car for 2 days now, and both days he has brought it back late. Yesterday he was at least 90 minutes late. Right now he is 20 minutes late. Looks like no gym for me again today.

:(

The free weights in the gym are done in KGs, the machines are labelled with both, but they're based on lbs so it's simpler to go by the lbs. But you're right, maybe I should keep track of it all in kgs.

For me it is much easier to think in kg anyway :)
If you always measure the same exercises in the same category, you can compare those weights from training to training. So you'll se gains anyhow.

I think an overview in one measurement is nicer, since you can also compare how much more weight you move with another musclegroup. I like to see that. But I mean it is totally up to you :D

By the way, did you hold the 17,5kg dumbell(?) with two hands?
And what is a resistance row machine?

Well I tend to keep track of the same machine in the same measurements, I don't switch up with them (I think? Unless I labelled them wrong). But I dislike lbs in the first instance, kg makes much more sense.

For the behind the head tricep thingie, I held it with both hands yeah.

I dunno what the real word for the resistance row machine is... the machine just says 'row machine'. But it's not a rowing machine... you sit down on it with a straight back, and there is a pad which is pressed against your chest/ stomach. There are two handles in front of you, and you hold them with your hands with your thumb pointing upwards, with your arms out straight. Then you pull back, so that your arms bend as far as they can, and you pull in your shoulderblades. Etc.

Well I can't put on muscle and cut fat at the same time really. I want to maintain what I have and cut the fat out first. So I've been rubbing myself against a giant cheese grater to get most of it off, then I will fry myself to get rid of the rest.

Rrrrrubbishizzle.

As long as you eat clean food (as you do as far as i know) it shouldn't be too hard. Focus on getting stronger in the 8-12 rep range and don't force feed yourself.

K-oz, those pictures are not from Batman Begins! [-X
You should know that! ;)

Yeah, it is possible to do it, but I don't have confidence in myself that I'll achieve it, I think I'm more likely to lose the weight and put on a small amount of muslce in the process probably, and then maybe I'll be satisfied (I already feel like I don't want to be much bigger). But if I get cut and I don't feel I'm big enough I'd continue and lift heavier.

I heard Bale in an interview recently. He had the same kind of London accent that he had in Reign of Fire. It was really awesome, I hope that's his real voice, although he was born in wales. I'd like it if he had a welsh accent too, but it seems like it's London time. EE KNOWZ WOT TIME I' IZ
