    Will 6 weeks w/out lifting result in much muscle loss?

    I have what appears to be a minor, albeit nagging, pulled rotator cuff. I can do all my lifts, I just tend to feel a bit of an ache around my shoulder that's more than normal.

    Anyone have experience w/taking up to 6 weeks off from gym? Some are telling me I should take off for this long. I've been told by experienced lifters that there's a "muscle memory" involved that gets you back quickly to where you were previously. Anyone w/a rotator cuff pull experience feel 6 weeks is a long time for just a "pull"? Any thoughts or experiences w/this would be great.

    Also, I have access to Testosterone Enanthate - would this help to preserve muscle mass? I'm on TRT anyway and considering upping the dosage.

    I know people freak out at the idea of all their hard work being un done because you need to sit out for a few weeks.

    I'm not going to lie to you, you will probably see mass loss as far as I know, but it wont be terribly severe and it wont take you that long to work it back.

    You have got to let yourself heal though, otherwise your setting yourself up for some very serious problems in later life.
