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

The current record, for anyone interested, is around the 1 min 58 second mark (plus a few tenths of a second), if the Australian record of 2010 has not been beaten yet.

2 x 5kg DBs (50% of male challenge hold)


56 sec hold




The shaking started pretty early on, after about 10 seconds, I reckon...but I'm happy with 56 seconds.
