losing muscle tone after a month off???

I am having to take 1month to 6 weeks off of lifting, due to surgery. After working so hard on my upper body, do you think i will lose what i have gained? I am very distraut about this. I know i can get it back, and a break is good, but that is a pretty long time. Anyone know.........

Re: losing muscle tone after a month off???

You'll probably lose some strength and mucle, but a month isn't really that long and it won't hardly take any time at all to get back to where you are. Keep protein intake high so that you will be less likely to lose muscle. I wouldn't sweat it.
Keep your body lean, your blood clean and your mind sharp. -Rollins
