    Haha. Cheese is fine. Essentially if you're eating healthy, just eat >more<. You will be burning more now you're exercising and some will be used for growth, so you won't have a gain in fat.

    Just make sure you're lifting heavy enough and intensely enough (if it's high reps) to produce a neuro-muscular response. I.e. 4kg dumbells probably won't cut it!
    How is training going dude? I remember you had as blog on here a while back...

    Upping 4kg next week. I will be trying to lift every day unless I feel I need to rest. I can't do much more than 3 sets of 10-15 with the 4kg before my arms ache.. But I have noticed they don't hurt in the way that they normally do when they're breaking- ie growing.. So can up them very soon. Want to be able to lift 10 in each arm. Then not sure if I may need to buy more weights / a bar.

    You will need both more weights/bar. That, or a gym membership (the latter is probably the better idea)!

    Good-ish. Tore my pec recently, so just been doing hypertrophy stuff around the injury and I've cut my bodyfat % down loads. I'm the leanest I've been in a long time!

    I have a gym membership.. I just doubt I will be able to get a non-six month minimum membership when I have to move and the only other gym would then be at work- not sure how comfortable I feel lifting in front of my work buddies especially when I'm starting off..

    I've never got the fear of gyms (I train with a girl at uni sometimes and she'll only ever go into the 'free weights' section if I'm with her). Everyone will know if you've just started and they were once there themselves! Honestly, you'll be fine.
