cant explain this

just come back from a 10 day holiday in Ayia Napa. I drunk hard every day and ate maybe one meal a day which was like a burger and chips or something. i only act this way once a year so i just forget all diet and training for a bit and go for it. funny thing is ive gone back to the gym and i look much more ripped, my muscle look harder and more defined and my strength has stayed the same. how can this be i was expecting to do at least a months hard training to get to the posititon i was before. surely a tan cant make that much of a difference on your appereance. can anyone explain this?

    the most important part of training is rest, sounds like you have had a rest. a lot of people on here have posted that they see a difference after a break.

    Yeah, I like to take a week out of the gym a few times per year 'cause it gives my body a rest.
    A few things here.
    Firstly as you say, you have a tan, that'll help make you look harder and more defined.
    Secondly, if you've been eating so little and, I'm assuming, been clubbing, dancing, shagging swimming etc etc, you'll have been burning more calories than will have been eating. You might have lost a bit of muscle but also, a fair bit of bodyfat, again, making you look more defined (which consequently makes you seem more muscley/bigger).

    Also, in you mind's eye, you'l EXPECT to have shrunk and have lost pounds so ghoing back to the gym in your current state, you'll look at yourself and you'll be better than expected.

    Oh, and apart from anything else, if you've had a great holiday, successful with the girls or just had a cracking time, your confidence will be through the roof, making your lifts easier.

    Oh and... if it was a successful holiday in terms of the women. Sex boosts test my man! In fact, even just seeing all that hot semi-naked totty on the beach will help boost test levels!

    there's a few reasons!

    party hard!
