If you MUST miss a week of working out, is it REALLY that serious?
yes it is. I once went on a biz trip and the hotel that I was at did'nt have a gym. I seriously freaked the fuck out.
i dont see the big deal
I love it
It doesn't bother me much but I usually don't respond well to getting a week off to stimulate gains. Anything over a week and I begin to lose strength fast.
is this for medical reasons or are you just not going to be near a gym?
i read a good article somewhere of workouts you can do when you arent around a gym... i'll dig it up if thats the case
other than that a week off won't kill you. I usually feel wierd when I cant hit the gym, but the only downside is some extra soreness the week you get back... maybe a slight dip in strength that you have back by the next week
Occasionally having a week off is a good thing. I don't take enough breaks as is.
i'm gonna be going to a 3rd world country for a week.
i feel fat if i do
I start to go nuts, but as far as losing gains it doesn't matter a whole lot.
want me to try to dig up that article for some stuff you can do?
I feel guilty.
my week of rest is done tonight is pain day
pack on the lbs and let the body recover and just fucking hammer it when you get back. weeks off are money
make sure and eat big on your week off and you should be fine...you'll run into trouble if you starve yourself AND don't lift though...say goodbye to size and strength
If you are prone to losing muscle and strength, one week is a big deal. I missed a week of arms/chest and now my max bench dropped by 25lb.
I heard you could die if you start lifting intense then suddenly take a break for 1 week.
fucking hate it
