Once you’ve put on a few lbs of muscle and subsequently lost some of them because of a hiatus from training, does it become easier to get to one’s old peak mass/weight, or is it just as hard the second time around?
I find it easier to get up to where I was if I’ve been away from the gym for a couple of months (once a year this happens) and then come back. I’m often about 5 lbs lighter but after a few weeks of training, I manage to get the the muscle back. I’m your typical hard gainer and I loose mass really quickly when I’m not working out. Even if I’m eating like a pig.
