    This is probably a dumb question, so I'm counting on you geniuses to enlighten me.

    I am going to be out of the gym for approximately 4 weeks while on a camping trip. Going to be doing a lot physical exertion, but probably won't be able to eat as much as I normally do.

    Am I going to lose the gains I made this semester? :hs:

    yes, you will lose all of them. You will shrink back to exactly how you were before you ever lifted a weight.

    You first need muscle in order to lose it.

    4 weeks is kinda long. and if you don't have a proper diet, it is possible that you could lose quite a bit of weight. but the good news is that you will probably be able to get it back fairly quick, like jonno mentioned
