Muscle Memory

Anyone care to elaborate on how this works? Is it something that rings true or is it merely just in ones head? Does it apply to strength, or only mass, or both? Any insight into this would be appreciated!

I went back to the gym after a 6 week hiatus from heavy lifting from a hurt shoulder. I'd lost about 40lbs on bench and was repping with 60s instead of 75s on incline. Within 3 weeks I was back to where I had been. This all of course was coupled with a good diet.

How would this apply to someone such as myself who hasn't worked out in a year plus?

when you lift a lot, and you put on some solid muscle, you will actually go through some skeletal changes. Your bones will adapt to help fit your frame.

I *personally* think that a lot of the 'muscle memory' some people experience is due to the actual physical changes their body made to accommodate the muscle in the first place... meaning your body is more apt to gain quickly since it is ready to do so. Does that make sense? LOL I'm trying to make sense. I think it does.

^ That guy has it about right. Even if it's been a year, if you get back into it you should put on weight faster than normal since your body "remembers" what to do.
