12. Please don't apologize!
You're doing me a huge favor, so take all of the time you need to respond.

I really don't have any machines that I particularly like -- other than maybe the lat pulldown and the chest press. My main issue is that I never know how much weight to put on.

The other thing is that I really don't like curls (they feel really awkward), although I know that working my biceps needs to be part of my routine.
