Hello again, everyone. I'm sure there are some of you tired of seeing my posts and my inexperience, but there's another issue that I need help with.
Every time I have to stop going to the gym for some reason, I seem to lose almost all my strength that I gained in the time I WAS going to the gym. Like this past time, I recently got back in the gym after being out of town for around three months.
While out of town I was unable to lift and suffered greatly for it. I got back into the gym finally and ALL my lifts went down, badly. I went from squatting 405 lbs for sets to struggling with 225 for a 5x5. The only thing that was really unaffected was my deadlift.
I was wondering if there's some secret to keeping all your strength gains, even when unable to get to the gym for extended periods.
