    Hiya im very interested in this subject and would like to open it up to discussion.

    Does it exist?
    If so how long does it last?
    eg ( if i was toned 15 years ago is the memory still there)

    At what stage does it kick in? eg ( only after reaching a certain body fat amount)

    How much does it kick in? eg ( will it return fully if worked with or are the results less)

    Thanks for reading i think if we can get this accurate then it could be very inspirational.:)

    Diet:
    My own low cal, with low sugar and sodium
    I absolutely believe it! It's training the muscle for a purpose and when a specific movement is repeated time and again the body will respond by instinct making the movement easier each time. I also believe most of that is in the mind. Like popping a sugar pill.

    No idea... But I agree the more I repeat and use my muscles the easier it gets.... So I guess that's training x

    Fact!! Not sure about how long it remains but my bet is that with training and sensible diet changes you will get back where you was or close to it x
