    That's great.

    You will get many, many years out of that.

    Where do you have it set up?

    Olympic, but we have both lb and kilo plates, so we gotta make sure we don't mix.

    We call the kilo plates the Hasselhoff set.

    Both. I mostly use the Olympic weights for everything except for leg curl ext machine and lat pulldown/tricep machine for standard plates.

    Oh and EZ curl bar gets standard plates as well.
