    I went to the gym today after being sick for a week and...

    I also didn't eat much for the week. I knew I'd be a little weak but it was incredible. I couldn't lift anything. And I was failing after hardly any reps. It was like I came in after I had already worked out. My bench was like 60 pounds less than usual and I had NO STAMINA.

    What would cause this? I only lost like 4 pounds so I wouldn't think I'd be that weak. And I am fully recovered from being sick.

    If you're really sick and have to take a week off-it's essential, and that's an understatement, to make sure you eat your ass off during that week. Keep protein high if anything.

    I'm in the same boat as you. I was sick, lost 4 lbs. and find it hard to train with a decent intensity again. It is 2 weeks since my last workout, but I am finally feeling like I can train like I did before I got sick. Just listen to your body, maybe you are run down and it is trying to rest.
