    I've been out of the gym for the last two weeks for a trip to Maui / Holidays after having been in the gym 5 days/week for the past 14 months or so. Before going to Hawaii, my deadlift was 355x4. Came back from Hawaii after a couple of weeks and could only pull 275x4. Now I have strep throat and will be out of the gym for at least the next 3-4 days. :wtc: :wtc: :wtc:

    I swam about 2 hours every day snorkling. Definitely wasn't lazy in Maui, but didn't do any kind of strength training. Being sick after a two week break sucks...I want to go lift.

    two weeks off made you lose 75lbs from your dl strength? That's nuts. I would think if I didn't lift for two weeks there'd be almost no change at all.

    I was off two weeks because of the holidays - lots of friends & family in town.

    It worked out great for me - I was plateauing a bit anyway, now I feel refreshed. Went back today and had one of my better workouts.

    you'll make back 80% of the ground lost in 2-3weeks.

    I think I was already getting sick at that point and just didn't know it yet. I had zero stamina. Hopefully, I'll get back to where I was in the next couple of weeks :x:

    I've lost strength faster than that, but it's also regained quickly

    that's true.


    The other day I struggled on 315 x 4 DL when a month or two ago I hit 350 x 4.


    I just didn't warm up properly and I've been sick. Once I'm better I'll learn from my mistake and hit it hard and probably get back to where I was at.

    :werd: I've been on vacation for the past two weeks and it is pretty depressing to see your body shrinking so quickly. I think I've lost 10 pounds since I've been here. Can't wait to see what my numbers are like when I go back in a week.

    bro, I get it you're big and strong... YOU have to realize there are noobs like me that read the sticky and still have questions in the wonderful world of transforming your body into something that you thought was inevitable...I understand i'm dumb skinny/anorexic newb... I just don't understand why you have simple smart ass one liners in my thread all the time? Congrats on your conditioning (av)... but please if you really do not want to unleash your knowledge on BB and diet expertise just shut the fuck up.. simple :wavey:
