Get Started With Muscle Activation Techniques® To Keep Your Muscles Strong & Functioning Well:

Has it been three months, six months, or longer since you last worked out?

You may be wondering, “Have I lost all of the benefits I used to have from working out?”

While on the surface, it may seem like the answer is, “definitely,” the truth is a lot more nuanced than that.

On this week’s episode of the Exercise Is Health® podcast, we are discussing what happens to your body when you stop exercising for an extended period of time, including how long it will take for you to start noticing changes in your strength and conditioning.

We also lay out a plan to highlight the key things you need to keep in mind when you return to exercise to make sure you don’t ramp up too quickly and can progress back to your former strength and fitness levels as efficiently as possible.

Check out all the details in this week’s episode!
