Added Kilogram Weight UnitOctober 2012
Kilogram Weight Unit Available – You can now specify either pounds or kilograms for exercises, 1 RM values, and Performance Test weights in StrengthPlanner. When creating new teams, you specify the default weight units that will be used to when entering 1 RM and Performance Tests values. Regardless of the Default Weight Units used for the team, body weights must always be entered in pounds.
When creating new exercises in StrengthPlanner, you can select either pounds or kilograms regardless of the Default Weight Units established for the team. However, 1 RM calculations for exercises using kilograms can only reference other exercises that use kilograms; references to body weight and exercises based on pounds are not valid. Likewise, exercises using pounds can not reference exercises based on kilograms.
Additionally, reports and printed strength cards are updated to denote whether pounds or kilograms are used with each exercise.
