So I caught a nasty stomach bug which put me out for the last two weeks. I ate very little, and what I did eat had to be force fed. I'm pretty pissed because I've lost quite a bit of mass (especially glute mass) and I leaned up considerably, which I don't like.
I know I know, muscle memory. But is it really that reliable? I mean I'm super pissed because I put in some serious time to get the body I want, and I feel completely back to square one due to this damn flu.
Also, what do you think my strength will be like on my first day back? Should I de-load considerably or not at all? I was on some other bodybuilding forums online (I know, fuck me right) and they were saying that any loss of strength is more than likely a mental thing, and that two weeks really shouldn't make that big of a difference. What do y'all think?
Do you think this was just the shock my body needs and I'll come back quick even better, or do you think it will take some time to get back to where I was? Thanks, appreciate it!
