Assuming you dont gain or lose weight, why is that?

I've been 145 for the past 8 years, and after like a month of not working out its like I have to start at the beginning again. I dont see why this is possible since i'm not losing muscle or gaining fat. also like my abs will and chest will be less defined

Muscle will brake down but it will be back fast once you start again. Taking a rest is also a good thing. A week of after 3 months intense workouts is a good idea if you ask me. You get back even stronger!

dutchy dynamite pretty much said .

also.. whatever muscles you're trying to target the most.. hit twice a week.. 3 days a part.. muscles need 48 hours to repair.. its hard.. and you will be sore.. everyday.. ( i look like a dumbass when i walk right now and my triceps feel like they are gonna fall off.
