I'm Matthew, 26 years old, from Canada. I used to do plenty of sports when I was younger (especially competitive swimming and karate). Then I went to university and stopped completely. I started training again last September.
Short term goals are to get stronger (which is also a long term goal!) and train 3-4 days per week on a regular basis. Medium term goals are to weigh 170lbs (I'm currently 155lbs at 5'8''). Long term goals are a 300lb bench press, 400lb squat, 500lb deadlift.
My current maxes are a 145lb paused bench press, 215lb squat and 305lb deadlift.
I went to the gym this morning, and here' what I did:

Decline sit-ups: 5x10x3
I'm not sure whether I'm writing this correctly, but I always wrote weightXrepsXsets (I think this is how they write in Eastern bloc countries).
