If i stop working out (lifting weights) for a week will i lose alot of muscle?
Will i lose any?
Is there a certain timeline when muscle starts to go away? (like 1 month of not doing weight lifting and you start to lose it?)
just wondering cause I haven't weight lifted in over a week and im worried i might lose some of it (im lifting tomorrow... so not to worry :P )

how can you lose in one month muscles which took you years to earn? unless you're starving yourself ... but i guess if you maintain your protein intake high you shouldn't be losing any muscle, in fact, your body will take all the time to recover fully, mean you'll gain muscle and then stop gaining when you have recovered fully.

When doing full body training and a decent diet odds of losing muscle mass are slim to none, even on a cut. Don't listen to all the bro science BS that exists in the world and in these forums."Everyone thinks they're on their way to single digit body fat as soon as they see a blurry four-pack in the right lighting.Your final body weight at 5-6% will be a lot less than what you think.Talk to me again when you get in contest shape." I'd be willing to say that 95% of people on this forum accomplish nothing in years, don't be one of those people. It's sad,they seem to have the knowledge many don't but can't utilize it.
