Enough with the lurking! I have been reading the logs of others here for some time now, and I have come to the conclusion that I had better start make my own contribution to the fantastic atmosphere in this place. Note: all measurements in this log is metric (I am too lazy to figure out the lbs)

Positively surprised... I am not supposed to be in PR shape in the squat, but I found at solid groove and jusst went with it. It was rather heavy but not all-out, there might be 5-10 kg more in the tank...
x2. Doing the math in my head is bad enough. Then I noticed there were commas where periods are supposed to be! Thank God for ibuprofen...
Welcome aboard! As has been said, good looking lifts. Finland is one of the countries I have always wanted to visit. Since I have to cross a few borders, not to mention the ocean, though, it might be a while.
I am not native to Finland but it does have its good sides, especially during summer. We are getting ready to celebrate the good old heathen midsummer-festival this weekend. That translates in to BBQ, beer, and sauna... and most likely someting like 10-15 drownings.
But feel free to visit, I highly recommend summertime in Finland
Nice work! Congrats on the PRs! Especially breaking 300# on bench. You know, saying 137,5 kg just doesn't sounds as impressive as 302.5 lbs. Kind of like how a 110 km speed limit looks more fun than 70 mph.
