How fast do you lose it?

Losses occur fastest during the first three weeks of slacking

 

 

Detraining Calendar


Sunday


Monday      Tuesday    Wednesday   Thursday      Friday       Saturday


 


Days 1 - 2


Days 3-5


 

Last day of training


Adrenaline and beta-endorphin levels drop. Your mood is affected negatively, but your body stays intact. Aerobic and power capabilities are the same.


Your muscles become tight from disuse and your flexibility is decreased. Touching your toes and other activities involving flexibility become more difficult and are often painful. Your aerobic capabilities are decreased 5% by fifth day off.


8


10


11


12


Day 6

You feel out of breath when [just walking up a flight of stairs


Days 7 - 9

You begin to have trouble sleeping and your attention span is shorter. Paying attention in class becomes more difficult. The body's ability to use oxygen (your V02 max) drops by 10%. Less oxygenated blood is pumped with each heartbeat.


Days 10

Your body's metabolic rate has begun to drop. You see added pounds.


Days 11-13

Your maximum heart rate and cardiac output is falling. Your ability to perform endurance activities declines by 15%. Your muscle tone is disappearing.


13


14


15


16


17


18


19


Day 13


Days 14-16


Days 17 -19


You feel sluggish and unable to perform normal daily activities as well as before.


Mitochondrial activity (energy production) in your muscle cells decreases. This causes you to feel lazy and without energy. This decreased cellular energy production also causes a continual drop in your metabolic rate. Your body feels soft.

Your body becomes less efficient at sweating and
cooling itself off. You can not get rid of excess heat
as easily and your body gets tired just trying to stay
cool. Your muscles are getting less oxygen and your
heart pumps less blood with each heart beat._____


20


21


22


23


24


25


261


Days 20 - 21

Your V02 max has dropped by
20%. Your body's ability to use
oxygen has decreased by a fifth
and simple aerobic tasks now
leave you breathless._________


Days 22 - 25

With the decrease in aerobic conditioning by 25%, you are also experiencing a decline in your anaerobic capabilities. Activities that involve short bursts of energy, such as weight lifting or sprints, become increasingly difficult and painful. You have lost 15-20% of your muscle mass and that lost mass in replaced with fat.


Day 26

You notice very obvious loss of muscle mass and your once hard muscles are soft.


27


28


29


30


31


32


33


Days 27 - 28

It would now be impossible for you to perform the aerobic and anaerobic activities that were a regular part of your training. Huge decreases have occurred.

Days 29 - 30

Your muscle strength has now declined by 30% and atrophy has set in. Loss of muscle mass means lower resting metabolism. Lifting previous weight is impossible

... and beyond the first month

Within 2-4 months, practically all gains from
V02 max training are lost. Your sports-specific
skills deteriorate and the rowing motion now
feels awkward. Your muscle strength erodes
by 40% and all muscle definition is gone.____


 

The Breakdown Rate: The exact rate at which you slide downhill to baseline (sedentary fitness level) is determined by your genetics, the shape you were in when you stopped exercising, and how long you had been fit. It may not seem fair, but the fitter you are, the faster you loose the benefits of working out. On the other hand, fitter people don't fall apart quite as much or to the same degree as sedentary people (couch potatoes). Moderately fit people show little change in the first weeks, but their capacities do decrease in subsequent weeks to a higher degree than the fitter athletes.

 

What does this all mean?   Do not wait for your winter crew training program or other winter sport to start before you begin training. Continue training to maintain all the aerobic and anaerobic gains you have made this fall with daily training and weekend races. Continue to gain endurance and strength!
