I normally am very serious and consistent with working out but things got hectic during the last month of school before break and then break was a month where I was away from the free gym. Basically, I haven’t worked out in two months. Breaks remotely this long are so unusual for me I am completely unprepared for what’s to come when I step back in the gym tomorrow.
Can anyone tell me what happens to your body when you quit working out? Do you lose strength first for a couple weeks and then size too or what? How long does it take to get back to where you left off 2 months earlier?
I was thinking that I should start off pursuing primarily structural gains through 8-10 rep sets on compound exercises in order to get some mass back to work with later when pursuing neural gains. Does anyone have additional suggestions?
I really wish someone would write an article about what processes your body goes through when you quit for a while and then start up again. Does anyone know of any programs I could find that are designed for coming back after time off?
