Thank you all so much for all the info!
I think these will do just fine for the moment...
A few more queries:
Also, when I do chin-ups, is it best for the biceps work-out, to have the palms close to each other (facing my face), wider apart on the same vertical axis as my shoulders, or even wider, when I'm pulling up?
When they say that I have to work & train on my "core" (which is the part of my body that stabilizes the rest of my body), do they mean the muscles around my spinal column or the chest?
Two bodybuilders that own the shop I buy my weights from, suggested that in order to gain muscle mass/volume much faster, I should also consume daily for 1.5 months, 160gr (80gr before lunch & 80gr after my evening workout before going to bed) of the following protein supplement and combined with 3gr of creatine powder (daily) before my workout, to increase strength and to be able to workout more time.

All-Stars Creatin Purhttp://www.sport-tiedje.com/allstars/na ... tinpur.htm
So are these products any good?
I’ve never used any protein supplements or creatine before. Are there any health risks involved? Generally I don’t have any health problems, but should I ask physician before I start using them?
Also, there seems to be a confusion of whether more kilos / less reps is ideal for increasing muscle mass/volume and less kilos / more reps is ideal for definition / toning your muscles or the exact opposite:
High Reps for "Muscle Tone" BAD Advice!http://fitnessblackbook.com/muscle_tone ... ad-advice/
I’ve asked 10 different people who have been doing weights for years (all very well built-up) and surprisingly, they had 2 different opinions on the matter. Half said that more kilos / less reps is ideal to increase muscle mass / volume & the other half said that less kilos / more reps is the best way to increase muscle mass / volume.
So what is the case then?
Thanks in advance
