The Concept of Detraining
Detraining is the complete cessation of training, or a substantial reduction in frequency, intensity, or volume that results in performance reductions and a loss of some of the benefits derived from physiological adaptations associated with training.
The length of the detraining period and the training status of the individual dictate the amount of performance loss.
Reductions in performance can occur in as little as 2 weeks, it is for this reason, staying on the path of fitness is important.
