Ummm... I guess it might to some degree? I'm not sure I'm a believer of muscle memory though.

Also, I live in Regina. How exactly do you regina back something? Is that some sort of derogatory term towards myself and my fellow Reginians?

It is real, but it isnt within the muscle itself, rather within the brain and the paths it creates in order to allow you to do the movement. The brain will very quickly recall the form and that will enable you to pikc up the form faster, and therefore gain quicker. This has been addressed several times though.

I absolutely believe in "muscle memory". I mean, the phenomenon is genuine, even if the reasons are based on neural or musclular, I dunno, but after a layoff of four months, I got back up to my old strength levels (that took me years to get to the first time) in several months.

Something that I noticed is that the more complex the movement the quicker you lose strength compared to say isolation lifts. My guess is that some muscles lose the strength quicker then others and this causes muscle imbalances and the muscles aren't all in sync when trying to do the movement.

I do not agree with this one. You may loose rhythm or conditioning but the strength stays allot long in my experiences.

I loose conditioning very fast be the strength remains for weeks doing Olympic or compound movements.

I believe in muscle memory, that's the beautiful thing about weightlifting, you can lose it all, and then later you can gain it all back
