      Does the speed it comes back drop proportionally with how long you’ve taken off?

        roughtly 2-3 weeks without losing gains
        this can be delayed significantly even you can even do bodyweight exercises 1-2 times per week as well, anything is way better than nothing
        and even if you don't lose gains, you might lose momentum and have shitty workouts when you get back

        i've heard as a rough rule of thumb that for most people, it'll take half as long as your break to get back to where you were (e.g. if you stopped lifting for 3 months, it would take you a month and a half to get back)
        (this model probably breaks for excessively long breaks and excessively weak or strong people)

    Depends. If you keep eating a lot you will keep growing for a week or so. I started years ago benching 185 as a max, squatting 160 as a max. Pretty shitty numbers but I worked hard enough that not long ago I smashed my ankle and took 6 months off where I just went to work and sat around with my foot elevated in the evening. When I came back I could squat 250 and bench 225. In two days I added 20 lbs on to both lifts. So while I did take a heavy loss the bar I regressed to was higher than it was before. If you eat healthy and heartily it is like you will continue to be a stronger version of yourself indefinitely and a lot of your training will remain despite setbacks.

      25 years ago, yes. Now they dress like frumpy pigs with high waisted gramma pants and nerd glasses. Fricking disgusting.

        99.5% this.
        .5% literal fetishwear in public

        Both categories interpret a split second glance as a rape attempt.

    You're out of shape by day 3.
    Being out of shape kills your gains.

    Depends on your diet and habits in that break. I've lost 20 lbs my bench press in couple weeks after a bender. But I've also gone 6 months with 2 sets a week and dint lose a rep on it.

    They start to diminish as soon as you finish healing from your last workout. It just depends how long before it is noticeable for you.

    It doesn't matter.
    If you don't work out, you lose potential gains
    If you don't work out for long enough, you lose actual gains
    But potential gains and actual gains are all gains
    Be the best you can be
    Never stop!!

    ...is what I would say.
    But actually, you can go for about a week of rest if you've been working out for months straight and not lose any potential gains at all because the vody is still recovering. Of course, you shouldn't use this as an excuse to take week long breaks every 3 months - just know that it's no big deal if you HAVE to skip a week because of business, travel, etc

    Realistically you should be finding alternative arrangements to be able to work out anyway wherever you go, and this can often mean learning a simple bodyweight routine you can pick up at any time.
