Tips for keeping muscle while on holidays (or taking a break from the gym) – 1️⃣Be in a calorie surplus ✅ If you’re overeating calories, your not very likely to drop much muscle. – ❎ You may however, be fat when you return, so you may need to account for that. – However, providing you’re not too fussed with a bit of extra body fat when you come back (maybe you leaned down a bit before you went on a break) means you shouldn’t stress too much. You’re not likely to “waste away” taking some time off from the gym. – 2️⃣ Prioritize protein ✅ Even with higher calories you still want to make sure you’re getting your protein in. – ✅ Protein helps to both build, and maintain muscle, so it makes sense to focus on that. Chances are all of the holiday food will contain MORE than enough fats and carbs anyway. – 3️⃣ Drink water. Nothing in like is a magic pill Except water. Water is magic. – 🇩🇰 Enjoy yourself, life is about balance (kind of). If you’re used to training hard then a few weeks off won’t kill you, you likely won’t move backwards very far and once you’re back to routine you’ll get back to where you left off pretty quickly! 🇩🇰
