      Stronger with same sets and weights? Or did you increase weights after the break?

      None you dyel, You should be taking off/deload weeks every once in a while even if you can train.

      I cannot train due to an injury (fuck OHPs lol) so the break is forced. I am really worried losing progress.

    fuck all

    i've just come back from a month out and strength has not changed, cardio is a little diminished but that's it

    people don't realise the body doesn't work on these arbitrary timescales, it could use some time to heal, unless you're training for competition what are you even doing going full tilt the whole year.

    You might shrink a little but you'll gain it back instantly

        It's just a visual thing. You won't actually lose muscle

    i didn't train for 5 weeks during my summer vacation and apart from the first week back in the gym and first 3 exercises, i picked up where i left and even gained strength on some exercises. this was most likely due to calorie surplus during those 5 weeks.

    you will lose a grand total of 0 gains in 1 week, and basically 0 even in 1 month.

    There's research on NCBI that shows that going off for three weeks had zero impact on lean muscle mass as long as you're not starving

    I'm currently sick, can barely stay at the computer and lifting is impossible, also I have zero appetite right now and am force feeding myself with milk and whey basically. Cant eat anything solid, simply wont go down. Been like this since monday, probably dropped weight and my waist has lost some ~3cm, my arm however remains at the same size. Your body actively tries to not lose lean mass if possible, burning through fat and water and only burning through lean mass if absolutely necessary. You won't lose shit in one week, two or three. Look the ncbi shit up

      This is possible if your CNS is fried. Happens if you go every set to failure, always heavy. It's what I do. What will help you if this is the case is taking a one week or so break from the gym completely. Just relax.

        That's funny because that's exactly what I do, Bulgarian light.

    Absolutely nothing, even in a month you would barely lose anything and you'll get it back very quickly.

    Now that I'm older -- 35 -- I notice a week off does result in some strength loss. Not major, but noticeable. You young bucks can get away with it no problem tho.

    I take a week off every month or so and always come back stronger. It really allows you to recover, especially if you hit the gym hard nearly every day

    Don't listen to trolls, not exercising for a whole week typically leads to at least 50% strength drop that is then recoverable slightly faster than it was first gotten and around 30-40% muscle mass loss which doesn't recover.
    Any future muscle gains you'll get will be from enlarging different muscle cells, of which you have a limited supply.

    1 week deload is an advanced tactic and should only be used very fucking cautiously and honestly probably never natty.
