I love these types of stories.

Unfortunately you really just gotta suck it up. Horrible as it is. Don't give in. And you won't nullify all your hard work

The answer, and it's not a good answer, is that previously I didn't do tricep isolation at all, so...

1. Good question. What you describe would be the correct way to return to training after weeks off. My reason for doing it this way is simply a curiosity for knowing what adaptations are lost,...

Here goes.


WARM-UP

I warmed up with a set of squats (I do this for maintenance purposes). I do one set of 10-12 reps at 1.25x bodyweight, and usually this feels easy as any warm-up ought to. I'll...

COUPLE MORE RELEVANT DETAILS

- Not using any supplements (creatine etc) other than whey, which I don't regard a supplement as such. To me it's just foodstuff.

- Age, 32.

- Genetically "average"?...

I booked a trip abroad for 2 and a half weeks, not even anticipating the possibility of no training. Even before I left, however, it became obvious that there wouldn't be even...

How much damage occurs with FULL 2.5 weeks off?

I've taken the longest compete break from all training in 10 years. 17 days of nothing at all.
