Loosing Muscle Mass

Do you think it is possible to loose muscle mass by taking off for about 10 days?

thanks

    10 days of correct nutrition but just with no training? No you wont lose any, unless you are in some sort of catabolic state induced by chronic gastric flu or something, but providing its just a holiday and you are functioning ok and getting the correct nurtition then no.

    If you starve yourself and do hours of cardio every day, then yes you will

    I read on here, a while ago that you start losing muscle after about 2-3 weeks of not training. But if your diet goes to cr*p then yeah you'll lose muscle cuaase you body still needs fuel and needs protein for essentials. I guess this means producing blood cells and basic repair etc etc.

    You can keep maintenence, so I'm told by having 100g protein per day (for a 200lb man) and doing light excerises to kee muscle stimulated. This'll slow the muscle-losing process down but won't hault it completely if you're out of proper training for weeks and weeks!

    no diffantive answer here its the same as gaining it vary's so much form person to person.
    myself a skinny type it drops off me if i stop training or the slightest dip in diet.
    if your going with out the gym id say keep high protien and just take a week out than after seven days do body weight stuff and some posing.

    As long as you're getting the calories in you shouldn't lose much if any and you'll be back to normal withink 2weeks i'd say. I'm currently feeling the effects of a sh*t diet as i'm skint. I've lost 9lbs so far, need a job soon to stop this

    My diet wen to cr*p on holiday, I got a bug that meant I barely ate for a whole day and (SICK WARNING FOR THOSE CURRENTLY EATING) threw up loads and shat out the entire contents of my cut. Great for cutting though!

    My weight dropped slightly when I came back but, now I'm back on form after a weekandabit.

    you wont loose any muscle at all.. unless your ill for a long period, or serverly calorie deficient...

    the reason you feel like you do is cos your regular eating and training pattern have been interupted and your muscle bellies will thave gone somewhat "flat"... all will be fine once regular training and nutrition is back ontrack mate...

    its hard to gain muscle... and its hard to lose it too.. unless your doing something totally crazy, then your fine bud..
