I have dedicate a little bit more than a year to training, in this year I only rested for about 3 to 4 weeks split! (Train 6 weeks 1 off). Now I dont get all that excited with my training in fact this past days I have been leaving the gym way early!! You could say I just had enough of weights for now, and to make matters worse I'm in the middle of moving to my new house. With in this year I whent from 140 lbs. to 180 lbs. (I dont know if this is decent what do you think?) So my plan right now is to start pushing cardio since I hardly did cardio & to keep my self active and burn that extra fat that I gained during the bulking process. Again this would only be for a matter of weeks since I'm lacking in time & more or less I would like to take a brake from the gym.... My question is how long would it take to lose my gains?? Or in other words how long do you recomend I should rest? I know that it only takes 48 hours to stop protein synthesis and that many suggest only to rest a week, but after pushing it to the limit after a year I would really like to take an extra vacation.
