SHOULD I ALSO KEEP MY DIET THE SAME!IT WIL BE HARD WHILST ON HOLIDAY BUT PLEASE CAN YOU ADVISE IF YOU HAVE ANY TDragon Pharmas ETC
ANY GOOD COMMENTS WILL BE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!!!
you will not lose "everything" you gained in the past 2 years by taking a layoff... in fact it might be good for you.... but if you are really worried, you can always do push-ups, pull-ups, bodyweight squats anywhere.
thanks for the advise!anyone else wishes to comment please do!
If you have that solid on your training, a couple weeks off will not hurt you. After a while I always take a week off here and there, I come back stronger and feeling better. Diet on vacation is tough, you are on vacation to have a good time, not to be counting carbs. Just try to keep it half way decent and stay away ffom Soda's and and junk/fast food as much as possible. And most importantly enjoy your vacation.
It is actually good to take a week or two off after every 6-12 weeks of training. Sometimes your body needs a rest. It would promote more muscle growth, and you will be more mentally focused on the gym when you get back. Enjoy yourself and listen to lefty's advice about food consumption.
