I converted the weight from 250lbs. I rounded it down to the nearest kilo. Free weights.
Plenty of breaths inbetween, but the weight never left my shoulders. Parallel. :P

On a serious note if any of the younger riders read this and are starting the Gym IMO you couldn't start at a better place than this:

http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/Starting_Strength_Wiki

And then have a look through articles 1 to 6 at the top of the right hand side.

My egos not that large.

I'm 44 just approx 95kg. End of last year I was on 120 for 5 just below parallel it's not huge but then I'm not trying to be an elite athlete.

Slowly on my way back up but got a way to go again.

Ha, the other room was out of bounds when I went with my class I was teaching... That's my excuse and I'm keeping to it.
