K, so Thanksgiving is coming up. Wife's parents have rented a couple beach cottages for us to go to. There IS a Planet Fitness (my gym) in the town. So...

How much regression would there be if I did not go to the gym for around 9 days? I currently am going about 4x/week, early AM (like 5:00), but for a very short time (20 minutes) during which I work on only one machine.

Do people go to the gym while on family vacations?

Yeah, I finally am beginning to see the results in that I am starting to like the way shirts look on me and others have commented on the fact that it appears I've been working out when I wear short sleeves.

I don't want to regress.

From what I understand, you won't lose any mass, it just doesn't work that way.  You might notice a slight loss in physical strength, but mostly when I take breaks, I come back stronger at least in the first set.  Sets 3,4,5, etc...drop off a lot quicker though...

Thanks, Clinton. I appreciate the feedback. 

Nine days sounds like a long time to me. I missed six days back in September when my mother was hospitalized, and it took me a while to catch up. I read once that you should do 50 push-ups on days you can't make it to the gym. I wish I would have remembered that.

What was your decision about going to the gym on vacation? How did it work out for you? (pun intended)
