See, this is the main reason we need to adopt the metric system.
I multiply it by the 2.2 and then go for the closest weight, slightly above, never below, if I can help it; though I tend to need to work figures the other way lbs to kgs.

I agree, as long as it's within a smidgen of the weightload, it's unimportant.






I'll be doing this with 5kg weights and yes, it really starts burning but it's the shaking that gets you
