    Ok I have a question for you guys here. I haven't touched a weight in a year, and because of work and my metabolism I have lost a pretty good amount of mass. When I quit I was around 215 and 10-12% bf, now I am probably around 175-180 at the most and less than 8% bf. What is the general time line for regaining mass?

    experience before I quit-3 years.
    I already have my bulking diet planned out, and I will be using creatine and protein powder...what else...think thats all the info you need. Oh I am 6'3 btw.

    Most people I've seen who come back after a hiatus recover pretty quick, some within a month to a month and a half. A year is a little bit of time though. Have you done any work the past year, bodyweight or anything?

    I used to have it tested every couple months out of curiosity by a friend who is a trainer, although it wasn't in a hydrostatic tank. (calipers ftw)

    I know they aren't super accurate, but its close enough for me since Im not competing. Gives me a ball park figure.

    Soooooooooooo.... More about muscle memory?

    Now that this applies to me due to my knee injury. My quads are destroyed in that leg. I need to start all over again with no strength in that leg. How quickly can I get it back to where it was?

    I dunno.

    I imagine there are far too many factors going into your personal recovery to allow for an accurate estimate by strangers over the internet. Suffice it to say, however, that it will be easier the second time around...
