I have recently been ‘off the wagon’ of lifting for about 4 months. I am naturally a very thin guy and a hard gainer. I had previously put on about 15lbs of muscle. In the last 4 months though, I have reverted almost all the way back to my skinny(er) self. I’m start a new lifting and nutrition plan next week.
Now I’ve heard people say a million times something to the effect of if you’ve put on muscle at one point and then lost it, it’s really easy to get it back because of muscle memory.
I just thought I would ask if there was any truth to this. since I’ve had some sort of muscle mass before, is it going to come back ‘easily’ once i get on a program again? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
