    Default regaining muscle

    Hey everyone,
    I began lifting about a year ago and lifted for about six months steady and had some pretty good results. after that i stopped lifting for about six months and now im looking to start up again. during my lapse i went from about 167-168lbs down to about 158. ive always had a body that was hard to keep weight on. i was wondering if it will be easier to regain this muscle/strength/weight that i once had, than it was to intially gain?

    with a solid diet and good routine, people usually hope to see gains of about a pound a week

    Well since you used to have that muscle it will be alot easier to gain your strength (thus growth, size, and weight back) then if you were to grow new muscle. Ive noticed this with a lot of people that return to the gym as opposed to new people who have never done it before or gaining new muscle. Why is this actually? sorry but have to ask that question.
    No pain, No gain (cliche isn't it but oh so true)
