    How fast do you lose muscle?

    Today's monday, and i've been sick since saturday. i took sun and mon off, and probably gonna take tues and wed off so i can come back full health.

    Right now i'm the best i've ever been. Am i gonna lose it? its only been 2 days off and i already feel smaller. i havent been as hungry (and usually i am never not hungry) even though im forcing myself to eat.

    i feel tiny now, most of it is prob psychological. but someone please reasure me......

    you have lost water weight, and your glycogen stores are probably depleted, atrophy does not occur that quickly.

    I was sooo close. I don't know. I'll have my b/f taken this evening. I've been eating soup and drinking sprite to get better plus eating oranges. This medicine I'm on is making me bloat and giving me stomach problems, nitemares, nasty taste in my mouth. I'm stopping it tomorrow. I read that all these are serious side effects and I should consult my doctor. I've done that and I'm waiting for him to call me back.

    This is a natural show and I doubt diuretics are allowed. I know that would help me out a lot and I have a doctor friend that would supply the prescription. I just don't want to bring the wrong message on stage because another reason why I do figure is to show people, you can do it naturally and you can make changes, etc....

    I didn't want to, but I felt like I lost everything even though when I went back I only lost about 45 pounds on the bench, but mass wise I felt like a stick. I cooled off on the eating too because it was just turning into fat since I wasn't doing anything with those calories.

    FLEX:

    The body loses strength at a rate of around 5% for every 3 days that you don’t work out.
    You should rest if you are injured or sick to give the body a chance to recover. It’s actually good to take a week or 2 off every once in a while, especially at the end of a periodized run.

    Regarding your rotator cuff “always hurting”. I would definitely see somebody about that. You could be doing serious harm to your shoulder. Could be an impingement , tendinitis or bursitis (among other things) and these things tend to get a lot worse if not promptly treated.
