When I take a week (or two) off of my regular work out routine, my arms and upper back muscles always seem to go first. That is, when I get back into the routine, I can't lift the weights without serious effort and shakiness. Is that normal? Only two weeks out and already the body wants to become jello. Maybe I didn't eat enough protein the day before. Or maybe my body is like my house....it only takes a short while before it loses its sheen and slumps with clutter.
What area of your body is the first to go when you take a break?
