After how many days do we lose muscle if we stop working out?

I was curious about this too a few months ago, so I looked it up.

I couldn't find a right answer anywhere at all. One website said one week, others said a few days, it was all confusing. So I'm going to share my personal experiences with you.

People who have a lot of muscle tend to lose it faster than those who don't. Say that you started working out a few months ago and you gain quite the bit of muscle, but suddenly you stop for a few weeks. Will this hurt you? Yes, but not that much. You might not even notice it's gone.

Now imagine a guy who has been working out his entire life. He has a lot of muscle, in fact he has so much muscle that he has to walk on his hands. If he stopped working out for a few days it's no big deal right? If you said "no it's not a big deal" you would be correct. He would be completely fine for a few days; we'll say about two. After that he would start to lose muscle rapidly. At some point it would stop and he would still have a significant amount of muscle, but not as much as before.

The second guy after a while would start to lose even more muscle, this time it probably wouldn't stop until he looks like an average joe.

I remember a few years back I was heavily obsessed with bodybuilding. It became an addiction and I could not get enough. I became big, like run-away-it's-a-monster big. I broke my arm and couldn't workout for a while, doctors orders. It was a solid month before I could continue my reign of biggest guy in town. Trust me, it was a huge town, like 300–500 people! Jokes aside, I did notice that my muscle had started going away, it left because I wasn't giving it attention. Typical right?

It probably had to do with me not eating correctly for a while, that always helps.

So after one month I started losing muscle, but I was dedicated to it. Beginners won't lose muscle as fast.


Could Vikings swim?

Lyonel Perabo points out that it's hard to be sure because most of our documentation was written after the "Viking Age". Still, if you assume that the sagas are reasonable approximations of what Viking-era Norsefolk used to do, then they almost certainly did swim well. Swimming (sund) is often listed as one of the

I am 20 years old, and 5 feet 7 inches. How can I gain more height?

If you are a woman, you are very unlikely to grow anymore. That said, 5 feet 7 inches is a solid bang on height for a woman. So no worries there.If you are a man, however, you might be able to grow a little more. Still, that is unlikely too, I am afraid. Most men
