    Just messing with ya everyone has to start somewhere.

    On the upside you're about to make beginner gains which is awesome because the gains you make in the first 6-12 months are the easiest, fastest gains you'll ever make.

    yeah, only problem is that I started going gym more then a year ago.. but I still think I have the beginner gains because of how low my stats are

    Well the key to getting stats up/ muscle growth is frequency and effective training.. try to get really motivated to do a big solid stack of training multiple times a week over summer and you'll soon see massive improvements

    Uh such a bad gym session man

    Manged to bench 2.5kg more lol had to really grind through it tho very close to failing, squats were awful (months ago before my break i could squat easily 60kg, today i struggled with 50kg failing my last set).Also the annoying thing about squats is the lack of mass on my back i find it hard to get low bar and high bar.

    30kg rows were easy but my form sucks.

    Today was a very weird session. I discovered that my form with squats is bad :moon:

    Also kinda worried because i actually tried to do a proper warm up today (jumping jacks,high knees,small jog, easy box jumps), then when doing squats my right quad felt discomfort squatting down even with body weight squats so i tried and worried that it was doing no good.

    Overheadpress i added 1.25 kg to each side and it was very tough, i ended up leanjbg back too much on last reps :/

    Deadlifts just about when well:smug:
