Battier is over 2m though

Still looks like a substantial gap between them though (maybe 40cm) and he is in the foreground.

Mirin arms though

Hey guys, I'm planning to go on a 3 weeks vacation where I'm pretty sure I won't have any access to gyms. Will I be losing a good amount of strength during a 3 week hiatus? I talked to a co-worker who majored in kinesiology regarding a similar topic. He told me it takes about 4 to 6 weeks for you to lose muscle tissue but strength lost comes earlier. If I up keep my protein and calories intake, how much would that help in keeping strength and muscle tissue for the 3 weeks off? Thanks.

U will get it back. I went to Europe for 2 weeks, lost 10lbs, was back up to speed in a month.

I just got back from three weeks in China with daily drinking and no exercise. Today will be my first gym day assuming the jet lag doesn't wipe me out this evening.

In the past I've found that for every week of vacation I need about a week to catch up.

Hahahahah!  

 

All of 5'7" (objective 5'7", which is likely equivalent to Stallone's 5'10") - but beside Shane Battier's 6'8" in that picture I might as well be a manlet.

don't sweat it. you're not competing, so just enjoy your vacation and try to keep your diet somewhat on point. top end strength will deteriorate a bit, but likely less than you think.

Just found out I'm going to have to live off like $17,000 from mid-August to December in NYC. Shit.

Bloated as fuck today, I gotta stop eating so much salty shit on the weekends.

Did a squat set then immediately got nailed by the barbell in the rack next to me because the dude fully unloaded one side. It catapulted over the rack and hit me square in the temple. Fuckin globo gyms. My own fault for being a squat warrior, I should have been on the preacher curl machine as no one can hurt me over there.

Fack man! No damage I hope? (Guess not unless you're typing like Stephen Hawking)

I think the weighted side hit the ground first, so I didn't get nailed that hard. I dunno, it didnt hurt but it was literally right after a PR set and I already had adrenaline going. I feel like it didn't hit me that hard, everyone thought I was dead. I think I got SUPER lucky. This is actually something I worry about a lot, I've seen it happen about 3x now (even at my powerlifting gym, it happens I guess), but every time it hit drywall or a mirror.

Did it on my own rack once but luckily caught it before it fully flipped. Now I deload one plate at a time

Welcome back Jarude, best of luck getting into the swing of things.

Thanks. I can manage most things with serious compression on my forearm but certain things are definitely still out. The only barbell movement I can tolerate is a front squat so it's lots of bands, db's, and smith machine for me with reps going no lower than fifteen. I've always hated higher rep ranges so now it's kind of nice to have to focus on them.

Silver lining... great learning experience: don't injure yourself. Am definitely much more appreciative of being able to train.
