Comments:

Pretty tiring workout, although squatting was good. I did one less set in the bench press because I have some back issues that flare up when I do upperbody work - issues that I have no idea what are caused by. It's a long story that I didn't expand on in here - a lot of stuff has happened during these pause years.

Pretty tiring workout. Bench was good in the beginning but after 4 sets I decided to stop and not do the 5th one as I was feeling weird. The stepups were crazy, felt very good and very difficult at the same time.

Comments:

Great squatting, felt very leg dominated. Also felt the right quad engaged in the movement. But I feel kind of weak right now after coming back home, like I overtrained myself. Found a guy that played hockey, just 22 years old, and spoke about a bunch of stuff.

There is something wrong with me health-wise, every time I do certain movements I feel like there's a "tickling" in my body, in my chest, in my neck, like something is wrong "inside".

Went in the park, played some 3-on-3 at the small rim (2.90 or 9.6) and after that threw down three dunks on it on three attempts. Pretty good.

Went in the park, played some ball, filmed a dunk on the small, 2.90m rim (9'6).

Knee pain so I switched to low bar. Despite the long pause, I could squat well. I recorded my top set, but by the looks of it I could do 130 kg or so right now.
