The Science of Detraining: How Long You Can Take a Break from the Gym Before You Lose Muscle Mass, Strength, and Endurance
In this article we answer how long it takes us to detrain (lose strength, conditioning, and muscle), and which strategies we can use to prevent it.
Do you think overtraining exists? How would you become overtrained? Does it happen slowly or quickly? Are you at risk of OT? Read the article, listen to the podcast, and watch the video to find out!
