Research shows that we tend to lose muscle very quickly with complete bed rest - mostly due to suppressed muscle protein synthesis. Doing any kind of physical activity, though, will maintain muscle much better than doing nothing. There are three main factors that will determine how quickly you lose muscle mass: physical activity level (bed rest vs everyday activities vs minimal bodyweight workouts vs weight training), caloric intake, and protein intake. Research shows us that you can prevent muscle loss through training (even minimal bodyweight workouts) and diet (eating at maintenance calories and consuming sufficient protein, 1.6-2.2 g/kg). Older individuals (over 60 years old) may require slightly higher training volume to maintain muscle mass than younger individuals, but the same general recommendations still apply. Finally, even if you lose size, muscle memory will rebuild lost mass quickly. ------------------------------- About me: I'm a Canadian natural pro bodybuilder and internationally-qualified powerlifter with a BSc in biochemistry/chemistry and a passion for science. I've been training for 12 years drug-free. I'm 5'5 and fluctuate between 160 lbs (lean) and 180 lbs (bulked). ------------------------------- Disclaimers: Jeff Nippard is not a doctor or a medical professional.

    I've never gone through so many emotions watching a video: fear, relief, intrigue, admiration, encouraged. Yo, Jeff, your work is incredible, man. Thank you so much.

    I wonder if anyone feels like me: i've been hiting the gym for 3 yeara almost without taking a break and not missing a single workout. Since quarentine started, i haven't done anything and i don't feel like doing anything either. A complete loss of motivation.

    This quarantine is forcing me to heal injuries by taking a break that I would't take otherwise which is the upside i guess

    It's kinda shitty how quickly you can lose your gains after a long period of working out with a good diet

    The Crohn’s example is an extreme example. Not only is there limited physical activity, but the body is also unable to absorb nutrients like protein. The client shown in the video was essentially going through sudden and extreme starvation during his Crohn’s flare up. Combine that with being bedridden due to the extreme weakness and fatigue that is usually present, the weight loss can be unbelievably fast. You can see in the photo that his body even began consuming essential fat stores as evidenced by his temporal wasting (fat reduction in the temples).

    I didnt start training again until the week before quarantine. After a 2 year bout of depression I had gone from 190lbs to 150lbs after years of not eating or sleeping enough. Within 2 months I am now 175lbs, leaner and more motivated than ever before. Just from pullups, dips and light squats!
