Muscle Memory

After a loooong layoff of training I have recently begun my way back to being fit. When I last worked out I was in awesome shape about 25lbs heavier all muscle than I am now. Reason I stopped working out was due to a car accident. I started very light with high reps just to get my muscles back into training mode. Have recently begun actual decent lifting weight.

Anyone else take a long layoff?? Year or more and then get back into it? I seem to be gaining strength and size pretty quick just wondering when the plateau will come.

you're on the right track with the low weight, high reps. there is an anatomical adaptation phase that is usually 2-3 months for new weight room users, probably not this long for you. after 1-2 months you should be able to increase weights/decrease reps if this is part of your goals.

Oh it is for sure.. I plan to get jacked again lol. I hate looking down the rack at the weight I was lifting before and not being able to lift it now lol its a total mind fuck. Its been 1 month since I started lifting again and the change in my body already is awesome... I wish it would keep up the transformation at this pace but alas I know it will slow down soon. I plan on doing a Heavy week next week and I will see how the muscles react...

Update: After 1 month of high rep low weight lifting I have started lifting heavy again.

My starting weight was an out of shape soft 193... Last night I was 199 with a huge change in body shape already. Keep in mind I have not been training for size yet so the next month of bulk training should be interesting.

So all in all... Muscle Memory is NOT a myth and its doing wonders for the body!

No supplements at all and eating like shit. I figured the whole supplement and diet thing could wait until I was ready to start bulking. The last week has been eating right and I will start taking supplements soon. If I have been making this much progress without really trying... I can't wait.

i took 2 months off thru the summer and i was planning on just taking it sorta easy for the first couple weeks but my first week back i was feeling good and i actually lifted MORE than where i plateaued previously in one or two exercises.

granted 2 months isnt all that long of a time, but i lost weight on the scale and lost a fair bit of size by looking in the mirror.

Broke the 200lb mark again. I did some research and found that 2lbs muscle weight gain per week is about the most you can realistically gain without "enhancements"

I'm averaging about 1-1.5lbs per week so my conclusion is ... Muscle Memory FTW!! Starting eating right and tomorrow going to buying some Myoplex or the like for meal replacement while I'm working.

Don't expect that to continue though after about a month or so.

Myoplex is a full meal replacement containing carbs, protein, and vitamins. Whey is just protein and usually needs to be mixed with a carb or fruits in order for it to be a true meal replacement. If you like Whey keep using it and all you need to do is toss in some oatmeal to make it a very good "meal".

Illuminate - Yea I'm just going to ride this out and continue to feed my body as well I can and hopefully it will reward me. Its been almost 7 weeks now with 2 weeks of heavy lifting and 1 week of proper diet. I am curious to see when the plateau will come as it innevitably does lol.

get adequate rest...proper nutrition, and a change in workouts will keep you from plateau'ing ...i've been gaining roughly 5.2lbs a week in the past 4 weeks, been training pretty hard, like I said, give me a shout and we'll go throw around some weights...

Just an update.... I'm now back up to 210lbs. I look a little thick right now around the midsection from bulking (still have abs just don't look "skinny") and my strength is pretty much where it was when I left off. The gym, if you can call it that, I have been using is extremely lacking. I use the hotel "gym" and that consists of dumbells up to 30lbs and a universal machine that works half the time and binds on the weights the other half lol. I went to my local gym with Care and that's my basis for comparison on strength. I was actually surprised at the amount I could lift. There is no way to gauge how much your actually pushing on that universal machine lol. Going to have to bite the bullet and actually start paying for gym time while in Kelowna. Once I hit 215lbs I will start trying to lean out a tad.

Happy Lifting!

It's funny that you would say I'm overweight and THEN ask how tall I am. I'm 6'3" and what is overweight and where are you getting your information? The Wii Fit Body mass index lol? Yea I'm heavier than the average person my size but I'm also a lot more muscular than most people my height.

BMI cannot measure lean muscle mass so you cannot assume someone is overweight.
