    Yep no kidding. Life doesn't get any slower/less busy as you get older either. Even if you only make it to the gym once a week it's still better than nothing. Progress may not be optimal, but you can still progress rather than regress.

    No ****.

    I am in the gym about 6 hours a week...

    It isn't that hard at all. Hell, even 30 minutes 2-4x a week is just fine.

    Thread starter... you are just a big vagina.

    A boss of mine once said 'don't tell me you didn't have time. What you mean is that it didn't get priority over whatever else you are doing.'

    Maybe semantics to some, but I thought it was a great attitude.

    It make you think about what is really a priority and I think that having solid priorities is definitely good for most people. At least the OP seems to have a clear identification of what is a priority.

    I also think taking more than a week or two off once a year or so is good, especially if you train hard for the whole year. It can definitely be hard to do though.

    I'd say up to 1 month rest and it will only take a week or two to get back to where you were. For extended breaks, say 2-9 months or more, if you were at a fairly high level, my experience is that it might take 50-80% of the time you were off to get back to where you were.

    Your priorities are in order man.

    School being #1

    Anything else #2

    Yes time management is a skill that can really allow to essentially make time for anything and everything...but when time is limited due to projects, exams, finals, etc, you have to take your pick based on your priority. There is nothing wrong with choosing school.

    Honestly for me now being out of college, I have WAY much more time to make for my BB routine than ever before.

    thank you.

    and OP-i'm not trying to rip on you, but as you can see, my schedule is grueling but i still make it work.

    no, i don't have free time, and yes, i have to write papers at work and stuff, but everyone can find at least 45 minutes-1 hour, 3 times a week, to go lift weights.

    Depends on many factors and your current state of training. I'll use myself as an example. I did Rippetoe for almost 5 months straight, only difference being I increased weights weekly as opposed to every workout. I got to a point where I plateaued on everything except deadlifts. I then got a wrist injury which put me out of the gym for a month.

    So for 4 weeks I did no physical activity, I stopped taking creatine, my diet sucked, but I relaxed, partied it up (yes I was drinking), and just enjoyed a breath of change.

    I lost about 7lbs, a lot being water weight. I had a cast put on my left arm and when they took it off, the arm was REALLY loose inside it.

    I lost a ton of strength.

    I researched and with some help from people here came up with a new program.

    The first week back at the gym sucked ass. I wanted to die every single day. By the end of the second week I had most of my strength back, I actually set new PRs, and I gained back 5lbs. A month into it I'm back to the weight I was, except with less fat (pants fitting better, belt tighter), more visible muscle, a much more relaxed diet (I'm no longer stuffing myself and I don't get stressed out about cheating), and more strength than ever.

    That said I think a week here and there isn't a bad idea, especially at the end of a cycle.

    A month may be too long. I take a week off every few months to replenish. You need that time to recuperate if you've been pounding the iron hard.

    I've never met anyone who is so busy that they can't find an hour. It's all about your priorities. Not a putdown, just a statement of fact.

    Never said it did. Atleast he has the sense to know what is more imortant in life.

    Yes time management is a skill that can really allow to essentially make time for anything and everything...but when time is limited due to projects, exams, finals, etc, you have to take your pick based on your priority. There is nothing wrong with choosing school.

    Honestly for me now being out of college, I have WAY much more time to make for my BB routine than ever before.

    Do I sense just a touch of jealousy in the air? Perhaps the reason why spirit3530's and probably 95% of the pics people post on here from topheavy weekend warriors are from the waist up. Dont Hate.........Congratulate!

    To Squarebx......Gratz on the physique man, good to see someone dedicated enough to put in a full body routine and it looks like you have some real goals set for yourself based on your profile. Good luck in your upcoming contests!

    This thread came up at a good time.

    Im leaving on a course with the army for the next 3 weeks. Just stocked up on VPX protein bars and some EAA caps. Will try to keep my diet as clean as possible... hard, but I guess Ill avoid anything with sugar

    As for workout, any kind of body weight routine I can follow to try and maintain muscle?

    LOL top heavy. My legs aren't that small "26 inch wheels real small" and I bet they are better than my back. I am insanely jealous of this guy.


    Yes I made fun of the pose. So what. If it was a front db bi or an ab and thigh I probably wouldn't have said anything. The pose looks funny... almost out of place thats all.

    Secondly, if you ever clicked on spirits profile you'd see his leg pics, which are some of the best on the site.

    The more over your natural size you are, the faster you will lose.

    The longer you have held the size, the more slowly you will lose it.

    The slower your metabolism, the more slowly you will lose it.

    There are lots of variables in place here. I've been experimenting with this a lot lately and I've noticed that personally I can take about two weeks off and still hit my Max on any specific exercise. I think that's about as far as I could push it without actually losing strength. Any longer than two weeks and I will start to lose strength. And of course when I train that one time after the break I get way more sore than normal during the following days. If had any advice it would just be too continue to eat healthy during your time off. And don't take too much time off if you can't fit a workout in at least pump your muscles maybe just do some push-ups and some Pull-Ups once every other day.
