nope....magical fairies fly around with strength for your muscles until you return to the gym...and once there, they relinquish your strength back to you


in short, yes. you do.

You will lose about 2.5lbs of muscle strength per week. Now this is not nature strength, but strength you have built up. So if you lay off for 4 weeks you on avg will lose 10lbs in strength.

I am not sure about giving an exact number here. We all have a different make up and this includes our strength.
