Detraining is defined as when you stop training and lose gains. Research shows that we tend to lose muscle very quickly with complete bed rest - mostly due to suppressed muscle protein synthesis. Doing any kind of physical activity, though, will maintain muscle much better than doing nothing. There are three main factors that will determine how quickly you lose muscle mass: physical activity level (bed rest vs everyday activities vs minimal bodyweight workouts vs weight training), caloric intake, and protein intake. Research shows us that you can prevent muscle loss through training (even minimal bodyweight workouts) and diet (eating at maintenance calories and consuming sufficient protein, 1.6-2.2 g/kg). Older individuals (over 60 years old) may require slightly higher training volume to maintain muscle mass than younger individuals, but the same general recommendations still apply. Finally, even if you lose size, muscle memory will rebuild lost mass quickly..
About me: I'm a Canadian natural pro bodybuilder and internationally-qualified powerlifter with a BSc in biochemistry/chemistry and a passion for science. I've been training for 12 years drug-free. I'm 5'5 and fluctuate between 160 lbs (lean) and 180 lbs (bulked)..

Hey guys! So the article I wrote corresponding to this video is going to kick off my new blog! This is officially live on my website ( My goal with blog will be to add more scientific depth and nuance to the topics covered in my videos. This is something I've been working on for a while and I'm really excited about it. Go give the first post a read and let me know what you think!

Also I'm planning to release a free short "bridge program" to all my newsletter subscribers describing exactly what to do once the gyms re-open (or when coming back from any training break). You can sign up for that here: . Hope you all enjoy the video! Peace!

Great video ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ. People often just give up when they canโ€™t train like they usually do and donโ€™t realize that maintaining muscle is actually relatively easy

This quarantine is forcing me to heal injuries by taking a break that I would't take otherwise which is the upside i guess

I've always loved how scientifically in-depth your content has been, but it's also been super fun to watch you get more creative and have more fun with making these videos. Hope Bro Jeff gets his home workouts in while on house arrest

The same boiling water that softens the potato hardens the egg. It's about what you're made of, not the circumstances.
So, don't quit
stay motivated, stay fit.

Quit the gym 14 years ago! With WILLPOWER it can be done!!!

I've been at home for 10 weeks already and I have definitely lost muscle, however I've also been eating way more crappy food. I try to combat it with home workouts, but it's just not the same as a real gym workout. Our gyms here in The Netherlands will be closed until September which is just crazy.
