Took 4 months off, now I'm back
I took 4 months off and now I'm gettin back into it. I'm not using any cycles nor have I in the past. Just wondering how long it has taken for most of you to get back to where you knew you were before from a long layoff. Stopped lifting in October and was probably the strongest I had ever been, then started again in February, It has been about a month, I know it's gonna take, longer, but I am just frustrated, becuase weight that I easily threw up months ago, is hard as hell right now. I just wanna start doing heavy sets and ****. I can't fricken wait, but patience is virtue, ****. Just wanted to know others experiences with layoffs. thanks.

I've only taken one extended layoff since I started lifting. For me it took forever to come back, for most people though after a few weeks you start to get a feel for the weights and your muscles remember how to balance them and it's all uphill from there. good luck

Never taken anytime off but your muscles have memory and if you keep working hard soon your muscles will begin to remember what you were doing before the layoff.

i don't know what i would be for 4 months, but i took a month and a half off a while ago cause of bad elbows. it took me about a month to get back... so i'd guess about 2 months bro...

I wouldn't be able to handle 4 months off... The most time i've taken off at one time is 2 days!
