    Flabby after stopping exercises

    It is common to hear this notion that after a well gym workout for a period, sudden stopping of exercises makes the body/muscles go flabby. How correct is this understanding?

    That happens because we build a lot of muscle mass and if we stop exercising if becomes flabby. We need to keep working out or else we will lose everything we have worked for!

    Is there a way to prevent this by doing minimal tonning exercises? Or is it a must to continue heavy workout for lifelong?

    If you build your muscle you need to keep going or you will lose it.

    Yeah, we need to keep going, not so much as when we are building it, but we do need to work out a few times per week.

    Well this is something that is certainly expected, but I do think that there are some good ways to combat it. It is hard to stay active all the time and really working to aid the general workout, but little things like finding ways to move in your seat and move while doing other things can help.

    I really don't think that just moving around will help us to maintain muscle, we need to do specific exercises, but surely that any other sport or a less sedentary life also help.

    I agree here. Just simple being active doesn't really help especially after heavy gym routine ans some sort of resistance exercises are needed. I was wondering if lifting weights at home suffices?

    That really depends on how much lifting you do, but to maintain I am expecting that we need to continue to do the same exercises, just less often and less time.
