this is like starting all over for me after 4 and half months off, so everythin feels weird and heavy soo i wana see how long it takes me to get back to what i was and see how long it takes too see if i can pass it aswell.

any way i start with some stretching and a few warm up exercises with bands, today am goin to hit chest, tris, some abs and a little cardio

incline bench 40kg - 3 x 8
flat dumbells 20kg - 3 x 8
decline bench 40kg - 3 x 8
too easy but still wanted my muscles to get used to the weight

bench dips - 3 x 10
skull crusher/cg bench - 3 x 10
overhead single arm extensions - 3 x 10
fairly easy started to really feel the muscles working while i was doing triceps

crunches - 3 x 15
hanging leg raises - 3 x 10
15 min moderate pase walk at high incline

was pretty cruisy workout if anyone has any suggestions on how i can improve because am just getting back into it or any general tips, be much appreciated :hsughr:

Welcome to the logs bro.

On the workout I dont have anything to add other then continue to take it pretty easy, but you will be surprised to how well your muscles remember how they used to be, if you just train, sleep and eat consistently. Good luck man.
