How easy is it to actually lose muscle?
So its been quite a hectic 6 months for me.. a lot of stress due to work, slight tear in my bicep tendon amongst other things.. i've gone some weeks without lifting at all.. to weeks where im training x1.. and weeks where im training x2.. like, i'd say on average over the course of 6 months i've probably been training x1 a week (full body). My nutrition could be better but i'm trying my best to hit 120-180 protein a day.
Now i see a lot of anxiety with people skipping workouts and stopping lifting all together.. the fear of losing muscle and looking different etc... but i have to say, looking at myself now compared to 6 months.. i actually look better.. maybe its the unintentional calorie deficit making me slightly leaner i don't know.. but i don't seemed to have lost significant amount of muscle if any? my strength has fluctuated due to injuries etc, but ended up coming back to where it was
