How bad did i detrain?

13 May 2017 20:26

Was sittkng on my bike last year for a good 20-30 hours a week. Did very well and weighted 67kg.

Some things happened and i lost all motivation and i didnt use a bike from January to April.
I walked 2 hours a day 5 days a week pretty fast pace 6-8km/h.
But that was all the training i got.

I guess i know my fitness have declined but now when i am motivated again do i blame myself for being such a trash.

One study talked about a worldclass enduranceathlete who needed 20 weeks to come back after 2 mo ths deteaining, what do even detraining mean? How inactive do you need to be to lose it all?

When it comes to muscles do you have musclememory and stuff but it is not the dame with vo2max. VO2max detoriate faaast.


What do you say?

The time needed to restore fitness depends a lot on your age, and your 'recovery ability'.
Muscle Memory really isn't a factor because it applies more to 'skill movements' than to strength or endurance.
I think your muscle strength will come back fairly quickly if you do good training. Endurance might take more time and training. Be careful to NOT do excessive training, you need to find a training load from which you can recover in a reasonable time (e.g. a day or 2). Improvements in strength & endurance DON'T happen during training, they happen during recovery when the body rebuilds and improves itself.
