At what point will my muscles start to shrink if I can’t workout?

Question:

At what point (timeframe) in your opinion, will the muscle begin to shrink if you do not or cannot workout?

Let’s say you travel for a month and for a period of time you can’t workout. What’s the absolute minimum you should do to keep the muscles?

Thanks,

Gunnar

Answer:

The bare minimum you should do is:

1- Keep as active as possible in whatever capacity you can

2- Get enough protein daily to maintain the muscle mass you currently have

After about 3 months the muscle will start to shink due to inactivity and non-use. But the best thing you can do is to make sure your body is in an anabolic state.
